Over a billion bottles and cans don’t get recycled in Ontario each year! Sign this petition to help change that.These recyclables either end up in our landfills or littered in our streets, parks and rivers. Recyclables are being washed downstream and polluting our Great Lakes and drinking water. Tiny bits of plastic are being eaten by small fish and other animals which cause chemicals to enter the food chain. Ontario needs to do a much better job of recycling to protect our Environment and Human Health. Ontario has the worst recycling return rate than any other province in Canada. Next time you are drinking from a bottle or can, please read the label. It will say, “Return for Refund where Applicable” Return for Refund programs are found throughout Canada and the United States. It’s time fo...
Hello Local 88 members. I’ve spent the day overhauling the members area of the website and making it simpler and more straight forward to use. There is only one choice in the main menu now under Members called…Members area. Select that and you will be taken to a new launch page with some explanation and 3 choices. Navigation will now be by one of the 3 icons which live on each members area page. They will take you back and forth between the pages. If you are a Local 88 member and would like to sign up please hit the register link in the main menu and we will get to you ASAP. Please be patient we are ironing out some problems with our email server and are having to do some of the sign up manually. If you have signed up and haven’t received an email letting you know you are...

We have had some confusion for our members during the sign up process for our Members area and it is completely our fault. We have changed things around to make things easier. If you haven’t yet signed up please use the register link in the menu. We will approve you as soon as we are able. If you have already signed up but haven’t yet made a password or received an email with a link to set your password please use the login link and enter your username or email then click the Lost Password link and you will be sent an email to set your password. Again sorry for the mix up. Allan.
Hello everyone, Our new website is now live. We have listened to your suggestions and slimmed things down and made things easier to find. The most commonly looked for items are up front. If you are a Local 88 member join our members area to connect with your work family, Buy/ Sell, post events etc. Welcome! We are working on our app. There may be a few days of service interruption while we switch it over. Also depending on your service provider it will take them time for our site to filter through their cached servers but we are here and ready to go! I’d personally like to thank the entire Communications team for All of their hard work brainstorming, web designing, graphics designing, and building. It’s been a busy two months. Thanks go out to: Nick D’Avirro Keith Ackwor...
Just a reminder that the monthly General Membership Meeting is tomorrow, Sunday, morning at 10:30 am. It’s a great time to get involved in the new year. With our new website launching later next week our Photographer, Doris weir, will be setting up her mini photo studio to get pics of our elected officials for the contact pages of the new site. If you are an elected official please make plans to attend. You don’t want a grey space with no pic next to your name. The tech-type people of the Communications Committee are also willing to hang around after the meeting tomorrow with our laptops to help get members signed up for the new members area of the website. Thanks. Allan
Good afternoon everyone. Just a notice that during the afternoon, Saturday, you may experience some service interruptions while we work on the new site getting everything set up. We will try to make it as intermittent as possible. You can still access info directly through the site, unifor88.ca Thanks. Allan.
ORLC Affiliates Vote to keep Unifor Delegates as members
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.
