From the President – Tears to Hope Relay – Saturday, June 17, 2023

Local 199 will be participating in the Tears To Hope Relay this year. This is a Canada-wide initiative aimed at raising money to help support families of missing and murdered Indigenous woman, girls, and two-spirit relations. This year Unifor has partnered with the Society to hold solidarity run/walks across the country where Unifor teams have signed up. Our goals are to raise awareness around this serious issue, and to support the families and communities by raising funds for the Tears to Hope Society. The goal is to raise enough to build a healing lodge.

Local 199 will be walking from the Local Union Hall around the neighbourhood (Route is 2.75km. Participants can walk the 2.75km, or do the route twice for the full 5km):   Start time will be 1:00 pm.  Participants will receive a free Unifor water bottle (while supplies last).
