On April 28th Team “Unifor National Canada” participated in the Toronto Steps for Life Walk with our largest team entry ever, and helped to raise a record-breaking $69,000 for the Toronto area walk.
Threads of Life is currently providing support services to 2,800 family members who have been personally affected by a workplace tragedy. There are thousands more who would benefit from this support, if they knew it was available to them.
We also respectfully recognized April 28th as the National Day of Mourning for workers killed, injured or diagnosed with occupational disease.
It was great seeing so many locals represented. Members from Locals 584, 707, 1285 and 1459 joined participants from the Toronto National Office and Unifor Ontario Regional Council Chairperson/President of Local 112 Scott McILmoyle.
Scott has issued a challenge to our other Unifor Regions to build a Steps for Life team for their area with as many Unifor members as possible.
An injury to one is an injury to all.
