UFCW Canada Local 1006A is proud to congratulate Rechev Browne, the recipient of the 2016 Wayne Hanley Youth Community Award.
Local 1006A members joined UFCW Canada delegates at the Young Workers Summit hosted by the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) from October 22 to 24. The summit brought together 400+ young workers from various unions across the country.
I volunteer because I like helping people. I’ve met many people when I volunteer and it feels great to be a part of something and to give back to your community.
I took part in the Youth Internship Program (YIP) sponsored by UFCW Canada. I got involved to learn new skills and find more ways to help out not just in my own home community but on a provincial, national or even a global level.
The local union is making a difference in the lives of women and children at Armagh House, a local area shelter, by supporting them as they seek to break away from a cycle of violence, said Local 1000A steward Ilija Dimeski.
Dimeski, who works at Cineplex Courtney Park in Mississauga, sought support from his union during the holiday season for the shelter where he servers as Treasurer.
Armagh House is a second-stage support housing program that helps women regain an independent life free from violence.
