Covid 19 and upcoming Federal Elections

It has been quite some time since we updated over here, and there has been a lot going on. Obviously you are all aware of the Covid 19 workplace changes, and all the concerns we have had with that. On a unit to unit level we have been focusing on our members, and the Executive has been doing their best to manage and help the units as issues arrive.

As we start to come to terms with how our workplaces have changed and gotten into a more set schedule and routine here at the local again we are trying to get this site set back up as a steady stream of local information for you.

As some of you may be aware it appears that a Federal Election will be called on Sunday the 15th of August, with the Election Day being September 20th. We at the local were contacted about having our hall space used as Tracey Ramsey’s Campaign Headquarters, and we are happy to welcome her and her team to the local.

With the elections coming expect to have some election information made available to you in each of your facilities.

As always if you have any questions or concerns please reach out to your in plant committee members, or to us here at the Local Executive Board.

The Holiday Season is upon us, and the Executive Board of Local 1959 would like to wish all of our members and their families a joyous and happy holiday season.

We would like to reflect on our success this past year, securing new collective agreements with Precision Plastics, and Amherst Quarries. We are hoping to build on that success here in the new year as we start negotiations with our Windsor Salt units.

We hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season and we look forward to a promising new year.
