I have been offered an assignment with Unifor National. I have accepted this assignment. The assignment will be effective May 1, 2018.
I want to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU to the membership and leadership of Unifor Local 88. It has been a very rewarding experience and a great opportunity to work with each of you over my 29 years in Unifor Local 88.
It has been an honour and a privilege to be part of a team representing each and every one of you in both bad and good times. We as a membership have faced many challenges head on together and have grown in strength doing so. It is my belief that our local union voice is stronger than ever. Our voice is being heard at the National level, in the Community and politically by all levels of governments. Our local union voice has been heard and will continue to be heard with the determination and courage of every Unifor Local 88 member.
My new assignment is another challenge that I will face head on. I will take the experiences and the knowledge that I have gained over the years from Unifor Local 88 and share with others. Unifor Local 88 will remain a strong force with my departure as it is the membership that makes our local union strong.
Hold your heads high & Keep up the fight! In Solidarity, Dan Borthwick
