Dear Members,

Nominations are now open for the annual Unifor Bud Jimmerfield Award and we want you to tell us about a Unifor member who deserves recognition for their work in making workplaces safer.

“Don't mourn my death, fight for the living.”

This is the challenge that Bud Jimmerfield passed on to all Unifor members prior to his death, following years of exposure to cancer-causing chemicals in his workplace.

The Bud Jimmerfield Award is Unifor’s longest-running award and is one way the union honours Bud’s work and celebrates those who continue his remarkable legacy. 

Nominate a Member

It is in recognition of this work that we proudly ask for nominations for the 2024 Bud Jimmerfield Award.

The award nominee must demonstrate strong leadership, community activism and a proven commitment to the prevention of injuries, deaths and/or occupational diseases, be a current Unifor member, and be nominated by their Local union leadership. 

Download the nomination form today and submit nominations no later than June 28, 2024 to the Unifor Health, Safety, and Environment Department at @email.

The award recipient will be contacted by the national union and the award will be presented at Unifor Canadian Council in Montreal, September 27-29, 2024.

In solidarity,

Lana Payne
Unifor National President
