On June 15, 2017, another 22 teachers – this time at the Islamic School of Hamilton – voted to join our Local Union.

“These new members had a lot of the same concerns as the teachers at the first two Islamic schools we organized,” said UFCW Local 175 Organizer Farman Ali. “They want to achieve respect on the job. They want policies that apply to each employee equally. And, they want formal lunch breaks.” Other concerns included job security, benefits, having a pension, and wage improvements.

The all-female staff of full and part-time teachers join 64 other teachers at two similar private schools in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) who voted to join the Union in May.
