Financial Secretary Report – November 2021

News around the hall

 I am happy to announce the Retirees Centre has opened effective November 1st to their normal activities. It has been shutdown since March 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions and an abundance of caution for everyone’s safety. I know a lot of retirees are looking forward to getting out to see their former co-workers and friends. The first retirees membership meeting is planned in-person on November 17, 2021.

To find out the hours of the Retiree’s lounge or activities happening, please call the Retirees Centre: 905-682-2611, ext. 234.

Our renovations downstairs are now complete and the union offices upstairs moved downstairs at the south end of the lower floor on May 1, 2021. This decision was difficult, but downsizing had to be done because our declining membership, income and needs warranted it. The entrance door to the office is down the ramp to the patio on the southwest corner. For those entering the Retirees Centre, the main entrance is as always, on the north side of the building. Anyone with issues that require the use of the ramp may access the office entrance to enter the r etiree lounge.

The union office hours are 9:00 am to 3:30 pm M-F.   Phone 905 682-2611

*Covid-19 Restrictions*

Due to Ontario government rules as well as Unifor National policy, you will need to show proof of double vaccination as well as photo ID to enter both the offices and Retirees Centre.

In solidarity,

Steve McMullen
