In the Community

The Sudbury & District Labour Council and the Labour Community celebrated a successful Labour Day despite the restrictions of COVID-19.  A parade of vehicles adorned with flags made its way through town to the Steelworkers Hall parking lot where attendees remained in their vehicles and enjoyed speeches through their radio and snacks delivered to their cars.  Thank you to all who attended!  *Click "Read More" for photos!

Sudbury Workers Education & Advocacy Centre is inviting you to join them for a rally to support paid sick days for workers across Ontario! The rally will take place on August 29th at 2:00 p.m. in Memorial Park beginning with speeches. At 2:45 there will be a march to Tom Davies Square where we will draw the connection between paid sick days and a Safe September.

The Executive and members of USW Local 6500 present representatives from Camp Quality with a cheque for $10,000.00. Camp Quality is a national charitable organization devoted to providing free camp experiences and year- round programming for children with cancer and blood disorders.

On January 4th, USW Local 6500, Local 2020, and the Sudbury Wolves held a special Sudbury Saturday Night to pay tribute to Steelworkers International President and hometown boy, Leo Gerard, who retired after more than 50 years with the Steelworkers.  

Hundreds of Steelworkers and friends turned out to see Leo drop the puck and to honour the meaningful work he has done, and continues to do, on behalf of working people in Sudbury and all over the World.  

For every ticket sold, $5.00 went to the Sudbury Action Centre for Youth.
