      Subject: 15 DAYS/15 WAYS TO END VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN

      Dear Brothers and Sisters,

      December 6, 2004 is the fifteen anniversary of the murder of 14 young women at the Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal. For fifteen years, women have been organizing and demanding action to end violence against women.

      In recognition of the anniversary, the Machinist Union in conjunction with the Canadian Labour Congress is proposing government action on fifteen different fronts, which we know would make a difference in the struggle to stop the violence.

      Please join us by sending a postcard a day to the Prime Minister. You could also organize local actions on any of the themes that are particularly relevant for you.

      For example, a group of women could get together to lobby your MP on child care or housing or pay equity or you could work with your local union or women's group to organize a fundraising activitiy for the women's centre or shelter.

      There are lots of issues and there is lots to be done.

      Let's make sure that the government knows that it's time to keep the promises. It's now time to act.

      Yours in Solidarity,

      Dave Ritchie
      GENERAL VICE PRESIDENT
