Good evening all. 

 Unfortunately there are a few layoffs next week.  

 The oil temper and straight and cut  is going to 8 hours. There is no layoff from that change as the company is crewing up #2 oil temper line. We lose one on the base on straight and cut from 4 to 3 but we gain on in oil temp going from 20 to 21.  This will take affect week of Feb 28.

 With the above, the company is restructuring the supervisors.  There will be, or should be a posting as to who will supervise what areas.

Good evening all. 

 Well it’s wind down time for the Christmas holidays.  A lot different from what we are used to with Covid but it’s nice to have the time off. 

 To the brothers laid off, I hope this doesn’t last long and we get back to precovid times!! Keep your head up brothers! I hope you received your “registered letters” for recall, as stated in the CBA, 7.11 (c). 

 Retirements for next week! I would like to congratulate and wish a happy healthy retirement to,

Good evening all. 

 As we approach the start of the “transformation project”, we, unfortunately,  see some layoffs.  I’m hoping these will be reduced as the brothers start to retire.  

 As for retirements, there are four brothers that start their vacation next week on the road to retirement.   

 Congratulations and good health to, 

 Andre Vasilisin ,Joe Rulys, Neil Harris and Angelo Dortea. 

Our next membership meeting is Thursday November 12 at 5:00pm. 

 Have great and safe weekend!!

As most may have heard, we have had two Covid cases. The company is trying to follow public health rules, trying!! 

 It seems, though, there are different rules and regulations for different people. The ministry has been called but as usual, it doesn’t seem to go anywhere.  Our H/S committee are working extremely diligently to make sure you are safe! Great job to the H/S committee!!
