Let's Rethink Child Care!
The CAW has joined the campaign to engage members and the public in rethinking the way we collectively conceive of child care.
Think child care is a personal problem? Think again. Believe it's only you and your family that struggles to find good child care options that you can afford? Not so.
The CAW is working with the Canadian Labour Congress, other unions and community allies on a new multi-year child care campaign, leading up to the 2015 federal election.
