Unifor welcomes the approximately six new members who work for the Corporation of the Municipality of Calvin, Ont. (near North Bay).

The workers had a unanimous vote count on June 28, 2023, to join Unifor. The certification covers municipal workers for the township. The unit will be assigned to an existing local shortly.

Unifor Local 103 led the organizing drive during May 2023. After a new municipal council was elected began to make negative changes to employment contracts, the municipality’s workers began the union drive to protect job security, wages, and time off.
