Membership Update December 19, 2022 – Membership Meetings

We wanted to reach out to all our members in YYC and YVR and thank you for coming out to our first Membership Meetings.  We held our YYC meeting on Wednesday, November 30th and YVR was on Thursday, December 15th.

It was valuable to meet with members face to face and we hope for those of you who attended found it helpful.  We had many discussions regarding your working conditions, what you’ve been facing in the workplace, issues you are finding difficult to work through and your successes.

At our meeting in YYC, we collected food donations for the Calgary Food Bank.  Thank you to all those who donated items which are desperately needed, especially at this time of year.  At our meeting in YVR, we collected monetary donations for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank as this is their preferred means of donations. We are pleased to announce that we donated $130 this year!  Thank you for all your generosity.

If you were at our meetings, we handed out Unifor pins which you can wear proudly on your uniform.  It was negotiated in our Collective Agreement that this is permitted; if you have any issues with Leadership, please have them reach out to us for clarification.  Reach out to your Union representative in your bases if you would like a pin to wear.

We are excited about the future with Unifor and what it will bring to our workplaces. Thank you for your engagement in the process and we look forward to working with you all in 2023.  Our next Membership Meeting will be held in Vancouver in February.
