Unifor 1119 and its over 300 active members wish everyone a Happy Holiday and a Prosperous New Year. We look forward to a New Year of continued support to our Community. A community we have been proud to promote and support for many years.
This past year has been very difficult, and a real test for our membership; with the closure of the Paper Machine we lost nearly 140 good jobs this past summer. Unifor 1119 continues to look for ways to lessen the impact of such a major Lay Off on our Members and our Community.
Our members have shown incredible Support and Solidarity for each other throughout this difficult time.
Unifor is Canada’s largest private sector Union representing more than 310,000 workers. Unifor looks forward to working with the new federal government to strengthen things like the Canadian Coast Guard and other vital services that have seen drastic cuts by the former Conservative government.
Unifor intends to work with governments of all types to ensure Canada keeps good paying jobs in Canada by halting any further closures, and to strengthen the Forest industry where ever possible.
Unifor 1119 is engaged with our local community and participates in community Events, Clubs, Leagues and Charities that make our community a caring place and a place we are all proud to call home.
