Yes. I’m thinking of Christmas, and it’s only July???
Retirees next meeting will be on September 13, followed on October 11, with the last one for 2017,  on November 8. That is the day we recognize those  who retired between May 1, 2017, and October 1,2017. We do this while also having our Christmas lunch. All members, (and spouses),  who retired prior May, need to pay $15.00 towards the November meal. This meeting gives us “old” retirees, the chance to meet and greet the newest members of our very exclusive chapter.The cut-off date for the payment is October 20,2017. There will be NO extension to this date, as we need to order the correct number of plates from the caterer. The new retirees and spouses do not pay for this meal, as your Local Union pays this in recognition of your time in this local.
This will be mentioned again at the September 13 meeting. Cheques should be made payable to UNIFOR LOCAL 88.
Labour Day committee is always in need of volunteers to help out with the parade, the soapbox derby, and in other small ways. Please consider coming out and lending a hand.
