The Occupational Health Clinics for Ontario Workers wants to make you aware of two free public information webinars that are being offered this week and next that are relevant to our members and their families. 

Although there is no formal Children's Christmas Party due to the Pandemic, USW Local 6500 Elves have been hard at work disributing gifts to the children of our members again this year.  If you haven't dropped by the Hall with your children yet, we will be here from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. December 17, 18, 21, 22, 23.  Social distancing will be adhered to and masks must be worn by all family members. 

We wish our members and their families a very Merry Christmas and safe and happy New Year.

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, our 42nd Annual Children’s Christmas Party will be changed to comply with public health guidelines.

Message from the President

I am pleased to announce we have been working with the Palladino Auto Group (PAG) to create an exciting community alliance that is now up and running.

Congratulations to this year's recipients of USW Local 6500's four post-secondary scholarships.  We wish you the very best!
