Local 4 (Grain Millers) members opt to forgo holiday party in favour of supporting former co-worker, his family

Delegates to each GSU annual meeting are given an opportunity to use their $50 Community Connection  donation to support a worthy individual, group, or cause of their choice. They are also asked to consider how to use their Local/Sub-Local’s dues rebate for a team-building group event.

After a former co-worker lost his family home to fire last month, Local 4 (Grain Millers) decided to forgo a holiday party in favour of combining their Community Connection and dues rebate into one cheque for presentation to their former co-worker and his family.

Local 4 member Kent Worthington will be delivering a $1,500 cheque and well-wishes on behalf of his fellow members.
