Local 1256 members at Dana Canada in Oakville, Ontario have been nominated for an award by United Way Halton and Hamilton.

“From bake sales, to draws to a silent action for which the company donated some big-ticket prizes, our joint fundraising campaign highlighted what a good employer-union relationship can look like,” said Alice Kelly, Unifor Local 126 Unit Chair. “Every year without fail, members come through to help make our campaign successful and to positively contribute towards the many lives that United Way’s work touches.”

Workers at Dana Canada develop engineering solutions that seek to enhance the abilities and longevity of powered vehicles and machinery.

“This nomination speaks volumes for the positive relationship the union has with this employer,” said Angus MacDonald, President of Unifor Local 1256. “This employer-union collaboration has been integral to the widespread success of the campaign.”

The award is one of many to be announced at the Evening of Celebration being hosed by United Way Halton and Hamilton. The evening will provide an overview of the organization’s campaigns over the last year and will celebrate the donors whose contributions have enabled success in fundraising and in community projects. The gathering is expected to include some of United Way Halton and Hamilton’s most notable supporters, community partners, elected officials and labour activists.
