Happy Thanksgiving

Hello everyone,

We have been a little bit absent on the site here recently, with everyone off on vacations through the summer and a lot of things going on at the local. We have something important to mention though. We will be having a movie day on Sunday October 21st. You should be seeing the sign up sheets in your facilities shortly. Make sure you sign up for a fun movie day. We will be showing Goosebumps 2 and First Man.


Secondly we wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

Local Update

Howdy folks,

We have gotten a little lost of posting on the website lately, so we figured we are due for an update.

We are currently in the process of setting up another movie event for our members for later in the year, watch for more updates on this.

From the Executive Board we would like to encourage our members to get out and vote in the upcoming provincial election. We are not endorsing any candidates in particular, mainly we just want to get our members out and engaged in voting. For more information please visit

Further to this, please have a safe Victoria Day Long weekend.

We would like to welcome Doug Shaw to the roll of Vice President. He is the Chairperson of Precision Plastics and brings an abundance of experience to the roll.

Well we don’t know about you, but over here the Summer flew by. With one week left until school starts we know the rush is on to get everything we in time. We here at Unifor Local 1959 hope you all had a wonderful Summer, and we hope you will join us for one last send off before it’s all over. Next weekend is our last long weekend of the Summer, and for those of you who are here in the city we sincerely hope you will join us for the Labour Day festivities on Monday September 4th. It will be a great time for the family with Border City Wrestling and various other activities going on.

After some discussion Unifor Local 1959 has decided to make a conscious effort to have a better presence at the Labour Day Festivities that are put on in Windsor Each year. We have posted a sign-up sheet in your respective workplaces to try to get an idea of how many people will be attending. We will be ordering shirts that will be available to those who attend.

Labour Day this year is on Monday September 4th.

There will be more information on the Labour day event posted closer to this date.

Thank you.
