Tragic death in the Workplace

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.

Additional information will be provided as the investigation moves forward.

Our thoughts are with Dawit’s family and co-workers.
