Have you experienced job insecurity? Tell us your story...
The Fédération des travailleurs et travailleuses du Québec (FTQ) awards one prize of $2000 to a female student who has held an unstable job (e.g. part-time, on call, on contract, temporary).
The candidate’s portfolio must include her letter of introduction and her answers to the following questions :
- Why did you choose to train or retrain for a traditionally male-dominated occupation? Describe your experience in an unstable job.
How will your training and work experience or your experience of union, social or volunteer involvement help you to:
- overcome obstacles to take your place within a team?
- be accepted and gain the respect of the male majority?
- keep your job?
- In your opinion, what can unions do to ensure that women continue to work in male-dominated professions?
