New website almost ready.

The new Unifor Local 88 website will be launching very soon. There will be all things that were on the old site + some new features like a more compact easier to navigate design with links to all things Local 88 and an improved members area. Please note – over the next two weeks some features of the old site may be intermittent as we move the last few things over to the new one. We will try to keep any interruptions as brief as possible. We are not currently approving members trying to sign up for the old members area because it will be shutting down shortly so if you have been trying to sign up in the last few weeks you will need to sign up again after we launch. Stay tuned we will keep everyone updated.
