Unifor Local 27 Retirees Chapter

Retired from the job, but not the fight

Retirees Chapter 2022 - March Update

Posted on March 18, 2022

I think that no matter how old or infirm I may become, I will always plant a large garden in the spring.
Who can resist the feelings of hope and joy that one gets from participating in nature’s rebirth?


Retirees Chapter 2022 - March Update


Spring is indeed a time of rebirth, and it seems like the perfect time for the rebirth of our Chapter.

The Executive continues to plan for our happy reunion on May 4th.

This meeting will not be held at the local due to extensive ongoing renovations to the hall. We are trying to arrange for a temporary venue with the Portuguese Hall seeming a possibility, more news to come on this front.

We are hoping that attendance will allow us to plan for a nice catered lunch to celebrate our return!

We are also hoping some of the membership might consider this return to normalcy as a time to truly help the chapter by running for one of the positions in the upcoming elections.

We do ask that everyone continue to follow current guidelines and wisdom.

  • Please do not attend (yet) if you are not vaccinated and boosted
  • Please do not attend if you are feeling any of the common Covid symptoms
  • Please do not attend if you have been out of the country in the last two weeks
  • Please do not attend if you or someone in your family group has been exposed to Covid in the last two weeks
  • We must honor whatever covid rules our temporary venue has in place

We feel that the first few meetings will have relatively low attendance, this will allow members to have some space if they wish. Masks may still be worn if required for personal comfort levels. We are hoping to arrange for a nice catered lunch at this first meeting.

Meeting Business:

We are planning to hold long-overdue elections at this meeting Position for all Chapter Executive positions will be open, they are:

  • Chairperson
  • Vice-Chairperson
  • Financial Secretary
  • Recording Secretary
  • Sargent At Arms
