Two Unifor locals took home top awards at the Canadian Association of Labour Media conference held recently in Montreal.
Local 222 in Oshawa was recognized as having the Best Website, Volunteer category for their efforts to provide a site for their members that provides plenty of content without being confusing to navigate.
“This Unifor local had a clear site design making it easy to access and discover content. It was apparent that they went above and beyond the stock design of the CMS software, and added many additional elements without making the site look junky,” the judges said.

In the Best Use of social Media, Local 4451 in Stratford, Ontario, took the top award in the volunteer category for its Facebook page.
“The content posted to this page is all relevant to the local. Notices for local events are posted, news is shared that seems directly relevant to members, and there is almost always a well written comment to personalize the content that is shared,” the judges said.
