The Unifor Local 1285 Executive Board hosted a BBQ Luncheon for the Retiree’s as their tribute for all their hard work throughout the years on Wednesday, Sept. 24. About 150 retirees came out with their spouses to be with other retirees to enjoy useful educational talks from CMHA speaker, Tammy Whelen and updates were delivered by Motilall Sarjoo, President of Peel District Labour Council, Ardis Snow Chrysler Plant Chairperson, Branko Katkic Retiree delegate and Local President Leon Rideout. The meeting was also chaired by Retiree Chapter Chairperson, Dennia Hryhorchuk.
The retirees also enjoyed some good food along with the opportunity to mingle with other fellow brothers and sisters and had the opportunity to purchase tickets for the 50/50 raffle draw. Unifor apparels were given out as prizes for the regular raffle draw.
On behalf of the executive board members of Unifor 1285, we would like to thank the volunteers who helped prepare the food as well as those who came out and participated in the event. We look forward to seeing you all at the Annual Retiree Luncheon in November.
