The Unifor Ontario Region Retired Workers Council Meeting, held at Unifor Local 88 in Ingersoll, Ontario on May 29, saw retirees coming together to celebrate their contributions to the union and to discuss future initiatives.

“Retirees are invaluable to our union,” said Samia Hashi, Unifor Ontario Regional Director. “Their wisdom and unwavering commitment serve as a foundation upon which we continue to build our union."

The day commenced with welcoming remarks from Les MacDonald, Chair of the Retired Workers Council Executive, who emphasized the importance of recognizing the legacy and ongoing involvement of retired members in the union. 

"Our retirees are the backbone of this union,” said MacDonald. “The contributions of retirees have not only shaped the union's history but also ensure its continued success and relevance.” 

Throughout the day, the attendees engaged in meaningful discussions, reflecting on past achievements and strategizing for the future. The agenda also featured presentations on public education, health care issues and reports from Retiree Chapters and Area Councils.
