Retiree Pat Brown Passes Away

April 26, 1942 - January 26, 2023

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of
Retiree Pat Brown on January 26, 2023

Pat Retired from Ford Bramalea on October 1, 2002 with
30.4 Years of Service

Our deepest condolences go out to his family.

Pat was a regular supporter of our union and attended many of
our Retiree meetings. He will be sadly missed.

In Celebration of:

PATTERSON BROWN

April 26, 1942 - January 26, 2023

It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of my beloved father Patterson Carr Brown on Thursday, January 26, 2023 at Dorothy Ley Hospice, Etobicoke

Survived by his son Ben Brown. He is survived by his brother Bill Brown (Ginette) Ottawa, Sisters: Dorothy Gosselin (North Bay), Linda Thody (London), Ellen Scott [King] (London), Wilma Smith [Gordon] (Rockwood), Lanie (Elaine) Elliott [Bob] (Amaranth) and his many cherished and much loved nieces, nephews, great- nieces and great- nephews and cousins.

He is predeceased by his brother-in-law’s Garry Thody and George Gosselin, father William Brown, mother Mary Brown Clowater and step-father Eugene (Chub) Clowater

Pat will forever be remembered as a loving, caring, and selfless man. His great wit and many stories will live on forever in our family lore. Pat touched countless lives and will be sorely missed by the many people he has left behind.

Pat was born on April 26, 1942 in Buffalo, NY and moved to Boiestown NB at the age of 2 following the sudden death of his dear father William Brown. Moving to Ontario at a young age, Pat lived the last many years of his life in Mississauga.

After retiring from The Ford Motor Company of Brampton my Dad and I were able to create wonderful memories going to ball diamonds all over North America and watching the many sports that he loved on TV especially his Toronto Blues Jays, Buffalo Sabres and of course Jeopardy. He also could be found quite often at the slots and Woodbine Horse races.

Visitation will take place on Thursday, February 2 , 2023 at the Turner & Porter "Peel" Chapel, 2180 Hurontario St., Mississauga (Hwy 10 N. of Q.E.W) from 1-3 & 6-8 p.m.

Many thanks to the health care team for the wonderful care my Dad received while in hospice and I ask that in lieu of flowers that donations be made to Dorothy Ley Hospice, 220 Sherway Dr., Etobicoke - dlhospice.org

Funeral arrangements Are as follows:

Visitation

Windsor Star workers fight back after Postmedia plans to shutter printing plant. Members are encouraged to have their say before the Canadian government negotiates a deal on health care funding next week. This year’s Black History Month statement focuses on empowering Black youth. Canada moves a step closer to end violence and harassment in the world of work. Unifor is among a coalition of unions pushing for a national Pharmacare plan. National President Lana Payne meets NABET 700-M Unifor members on set of Murdoch Mysteries.
Plus: Bargaining updates from Procor, PepsiCo, Westrock, ACL and EllisDon.

As Unifor recognizes Black History Month, in 2023, our focus is empowering the next generation of Black youth.

alt_text

On Feb. 7, Prime Minister Trudeau will meet with provincial leaders to negotiate a deal on health care funding. Sign the petition calling for politicians to put people over profits.

alt_text

Postmedia's decision to close the Windsor Star's Starway Printing Plant brings an end to more than a century of daily print newspaper publishing in Windsor and comes at the cost of eliminating roughly 75 media jobs in the city.

Unifor is disappointed and frustrated that Postmedia has largely kept the union and media workers hanging with a slow bleed of information that has left workers wondering which jobs are on the chopping block.

Costume design, props, sound and SP/FX – just some of the jobs that talented NABET 700-M Unifor members perform to bring Murdoch Mysteries to TV screens across the world.  See Lana Payne’s behind the scenes tour to meet the members who have made the show a hit for 16 seasons and counting.

A broad coalition of unions and progressive groups are demanding that the federal government keep its original promise and immediately institute national, universally accessible pharmacare program.


Ontario’s largest health care unions, including Unifor, CUPE, OPSEU, Ontario Nurses’ Association and SEIU Healthcare, warn Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland about the risk of privatization.

Canada becomes the 25th nation to ratify the International Labour Organization (ILO) Convention 190, a global framework to end violence and harassment in the world of work.

Unifor Local 892 members at the Mosaic potash mine in Esterhazy, Sask. are bargaining down to the wire for improved sick leave benefits.

Ford Owners Remain Least Likely to Be 'One and Done' Buyers
(Ford Authority) Ford has long enjoyed strong brand loyalty from its customers, ranking first in that category among all mainstream automakers last year, while S&P Global’s loyalty data found that Ford owners were the least likely to be “one and done” buyers than any other brand last fall – or in other words, customers that purchase a Blue Oval vehicle only to later sell or trade it for one from another brand.
