On Friday, December 15, 2017, members of UNIFOR 1285 gathered together early in the morning at Fresco in Brampton for their annual turkey drive. Turkeys were distributed to various non-profit organizations in the region of Peel.
Thank you to Fresco for their donation and another successful drive!
On Saturday, December 9, 2017, members and retirees of UNIFOR 1285 attended the 11th Annual Christmas party at the union hall. It was a lovely evening filled with a three-course dinner, dancing, raffles, and prizes and even a visit from Santa! Thank you to everyone who attended another successful event! We can’t wait for next year’s Christmas party!
Children, balloons, face-painters, animal balloons, the aroma of freshly-popped popcorn and sound of Christmas music filled the room, as Unifor Local 1285 members and their families gathered at the Pearson Convention Centre for the annual Children’s Christmas Party. Smiles were in large supply as many could not wait until Christmas to open their gifts and happily played with their new toys.
Unifor Local 1285 wishes all its members – those in attendance and those who were unable to attend – a warm and safe holiday season and 2018.
Unifor Local 1285 attended the Peel Aboriginals Network’s Full Moon Ceremony on October 4, 2017, to honour missing and murdered Indigenous women.
