Abstract: The Saskatchewan Working Women (SWW) was officially founded in September of 1979. A constitution was adopted and resolutions passed to establish the policy of the organization, the major issues for SWW, and how to work to resolve them. Membership is open to all women, unionized or non-unionized, paid or unpaid, who agree with the following objectives of the organization:
· Providing a network of solidarity, in particular with women workers, but also on a broader basis with other women and men in and out of the labor force.
· Uniting women in the organized labor movement and encouraging unorganized women to organize.
· Working to gain equality for women and end discrimination in the workplace.
· Improving working conditions, wages, hours of work, job security, daycare and other benefits of importance to women.
