The Canadian Auto Workers Union once again held the Labour Day Picnic on Monday, September 3rd. The day was a celebration of workers and bring public attention to what unions do for the people and how they support people.
“We’re having our annual Labour Day Picnic,” said Rick Belmont, President of CAW 2301. “It’s free hamburgers, free hotdogs, free popsicles and games for the kids. We do that every year the day before they go back to School.”
The picnic was well attended and there was a lot to celebrate. Earlier this summer, the union got through a new collective agreement. Belmont stated things to celebrate were stability, job protection as well as the work being done on the modernization.

I want to thank C.A.W for the free picnic and activities provided for everyone. We thought you had forgot about the locals ( the residents, not the workers ). The locals never forgot about the Workers and the Unions.
