A Christmas Message from Local 464

If I were to describe 2022 in a phrase, I’d say it represented getting back to business.  After tackling Saputo’s bargaining in late 2021, we turned our attention to the Earth’s Own/Happy Planet negotiations and hammered out a heck of a deal there, with the support of a great bargaining committee and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAMAW) and the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE).

Teamsters Canada held their Convention in Montreal in June, with all Canadian Locals participating.

We also were able to arrange a fabulous, in-person Shop Steward Seminar, after COVID restrictions had paused all get togethers.  It was so special to be able to get everyone together for this Seminar and it provides such valuable education for all our Stewards, who really do an amazing job on behalf of their co-workers.

The 2nd “annual” Local 464 Golf Tournament finally went ahead, and we had a decent turnout, great weather and managed to raise some money for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, a worthy charity in these tough economic times.  A good time was had by all!

As as another year comes to a close, I have to wonder: where did the time go?

And as the Christmas and Holiday Season quickly approach, all of us here at the Local would like to wish our members and their families a warm, wonderful Christmas Season and a stellar New Year.
