January 3, 2018
2018 is the eighth year of our exciting March 8 Project, developed by the OFL Women’s Committee celebrating International Women’s Day (IWD).
This year’s theme is “Marching ON”. Both the pewter pin and poster are a work of art that our members and community partners will value for many years to come.
The pin is sold at cost plus 25 cents. Any surplus of this added cost will be donated to a provincial women’s organization recommended by the OFL Women’s Committee to the OFL Executive Board. Last year’s surplus funds went to support the following organizations:
- Equal Pay Coalition’s Equal Pay Day Campaign
- CBTU Summer Youth Program: OFL sponsored 5 girls to attend
- OCBCC – Child Care Worker and Early Childhood Educator Appreciation Day
- Pay Equity Supreme Court Intervention
The price per pin for orders of 500 or more is $3.50. Orders of less than 500 is $3.75 per pin. Unions that place orders of 500 or more pins will have their union logo added to the poster. Posters (11×17) will be available in limited quantities in both English and French for $1.00 per poster.
All orders must be placed by February 16, 2018, in order to have the pins produced and shipped in advance of IWD. Orders can be placed after February 16, 2018, however we would not guarantee receipt of order before March 8, 2018.
This year, for your convenience, we have arranged an online order and payment option. Click the following link to order your 2017 IWD Pins and Poster myunionstore.com/iwd or maboutiquesyndicale.com/8mars. You can also reach the order form by clicking the images below.
