WINNIPEG—Unifor National President Jerry Dias will visit the renovations completed by Unifor volunteers at the Willow Place women’s shelter.

“Willow Place is a vital community service. Unifor members are proud to make a contribution to keeping the space comfortable and functional for survivors of domestic violence and the wonderful staff that support them,” said Dias.

Unifor members from the skilled trades have donated many hours over the past month to paint and replace carpets, cupboards, ceiling tile, and cabinets. The union also donated new commercial coolers and a freezer. This volunteer work is over and above the annual donation that Unifor makes to the shelter.
