We at Local 1976 were devastated to learn this weekend that brother Dawit Amare was tragically killed while working at the Canpar JCC warehouse.

The employer is cooperating with authorities to investigate this matter and the USW District 6 Emergency Response Team has been notified to assist with Dawit’s family and co-workers. Canpar is also contacting the EAP to arrange for on-site trauma and grief counselling.

Local 1976 would like to extend a huge thank you to all who purchased tickets for the raffle at last month's triennial convention in Montreal. With your help we raised $1,045 for Nataliya Sazonova and her family, who recently arrived in Canada from Ukraine. The local matched that amount, so we were thrilled to present the family with a cheque for $2,090 to help them as they get adjusted to life here. We wish them all the best for the future.
