Ontario's Union for fairness, equality and respect at work.

Congratulations to Kathy Matthews from Harry's No Frills in Parry Sound, Ontario for being the monthly winner of our Share Your Story Contest. Kathy will take home the prize of $50 in President's Choice gift cards for her winning entry in the 2016 Share Your Story contest.

"My name is Kathy Matthews and I work at Harry's No Frills in Parry Sound Ontario as a cashier. I had a heart attack in November 18, 2015 and was allowed to return to work the end of December to small size shifts 3 days a week. I now take 8 medications because of my heart attack and they are costly. But I'm thrilled with my benefit plan that pays 90 percent of them. I wouldn't have these benefits had our union not gotten it for us in a contract. It still is a HUGE BLESSING TO ME to have only 10 percent to pay. Without this benefit, I do not know if I could afford to get these medications and they are necessary for me. So I'm a grateful union member and happily say so. I have now been able to increase my hours to my normal ones I had before my heart attack and I'm thrilled. I work for the best retailer in Parry Sound and I am a part of the best union."
