FRANK MAREK
PASSES AWAY

Retired October 1, 2003
38.3 Years of Service

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of a great
friend and Union activist Frank Marek. Frank passed away Feb 1, 2020.

Frank was Local 584's Chairperson from 1967 to 1998. For 25 years
and 9 sets of negotiations he was instrumental in bringing
most of the benefits, wages and pensions that we enjoy today.

Frank has always been a fighter for worker rights and a strong voice for retirees especially in our fight to regain our pension cost of living.
Frank also served as Vice-Chair of local 584 Retirees
executive for many years.

Frank will not only be remembered as a fighter but also for being a very generous man with a great sense of humour, a kind person and a real gentleman. Franks biggest passion was fishing.  

He will be sadly missed by all who had the pleasure and
honour to know him.

Our sincerest condolences go out to his entire family
for their loss of a true icon.

Obituary

Marek, Frank

May 14, 1942 ~ February 1, 2020 (age 77)

Departed to ride The Great Fishing Boat in the Sky on Saturday, Feb 1, 2020 at the ripe old age of 77 after complications due to heart surgery. Joining his beloved wife Eileen, who has been calling him since her earthly departure in 2014 to finally get home and help her redecorate their heavenly living room and dining room.

Eternal fishing guide to his sons Paul and Kevin (Dana), and beloved tall-tale storyteller to his grandchildren Vann and Ty. Frank also joins his dearly missed sister Vilma (Rick) and beloved brother Stevie (Diane) at The Great Dinner Table with their angelic parents Steve and Rita. Leaving some pickerel and lake trout for his much-loved brothers Jimmy (Joan), Joseph (Elaine), David (Irene) and Johnny (Linda) to catch. Frank's tales were also deeply cherished by sister/brother in-laws Janet (Mark), Lorraine and Dennis, as well as being a dearly-loved patriarchal uncle by over a dozen nieces and nephews, as well as many children of friends that called him "Uncle Frank".

Frank very much enjoyed letting his closest friends Chris, Peter, Pete and Dan actually catch the fish, while he'd fib about it to his dearest friends George & Ann and Donna who've been awaiting his heavenly arrival with wife Eileen. While not fishing, Frank touched many lives in the labour movement as the longest-standing Local Union Chairman in CAW (UNIFOR) history, at Ford's Brampton Local 584.

Frank will be fondly remembered by his many union brothers and sisters for being instrumental in bringing vacation time to union workers across Canada. A private cremation service was held, but Paul and Kevin would like to extend a warm invite to all family, friends and neighbours whom Frank's loving and humorous energy touched, to join them in sharing great food, beer & wine, stories and lots of laughs in loving memory of this wonderful fisherman (or so he thought).

Please bring your favourite funny story to share - help us put the "fun" in funeral. The memorial party will be from 1pm to 4pm on Sunday February 16th, at the In Memoriam Life Celebration Center, Mono Plaza, 633419 Hwy 10, Unit B1, Mono. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Headwaters Hospital Palliative Care Unit.

Online condolences and donations may be made at www.imfunerals.com

In Memoriam Funeral Services Inc. has been given the honour to serve the Marek Family.

To send flowers to Frank's family, please visit our floral section.

LOCAL 584
75th Anniversary
November 23, 2019

Message from Unifor President

On behalf of Unifor and our 315,000 members, I extend my heartfelt congratulations on the 75th anniversary of UAW, CAW, and now Unifor Local 584. This is an incredible milestone and an important day for the entire Unifor family. The leadership and membership of Local 584, both past and present, have an earned legacy of committed labour and social activism.

You are a local union who has always punched above your weight at the bargaining table. Your participation at the master bargaining table and in the collective bargaining process has helped produce significant gains not just for Ford workers and their families, but for all workers in Canada.

Local 584 has a rich and proud history marked by sacrifice, support, commitment and most importantly, solidarity. Local 584 demonstrated these qualities from the time of its inception, offering financial and other support to Ford Windsor workers during their historic 99 day strike in 1945. This at a time when Local 584's general fund was barely enough to sustain itself. This action wasn’t just a charitable deed at a time of relative scarcity and rampant poverty, it was more than anything a deeply political act of solidarity in a time of crisis. An act of solidarity that would contribute to Ford workers achieving one of the most important wins in Canadian labour history.

I am sorry I could not be with you as you celebrate. Today, I am addressing our members gathered for this years BC Regional Council. However, together we can share our thoughts about both the past and the future. The strength you bring to the Unifor family through your history of solidarity and commitment will be needed now more than ever, as workers rights’ continue to be attacked and as our union continues to fight for those less fortunate than ourselves. I know Local 584 will continue to be an active participant in advancing workers rights.

Once again, on behalf of the 315,000 members of Unifor across Canada, I offer my personal congratulations as you celebrate your 75th year and wish you all the best as we look forward to the next 75 years ahead.

In solidarity,
Jerry Dias
National President

Thanks James Borges

Local 584 member James Borges wanted to show his support for our
Thanksgiving Food Drive and vowed to donate a dollar for ever pound
collected. True to his word he presented a cheque in the amount of
$1,142.00 that went to the Knights Table.

Thank you James for your generosity.


 

Queen's Park Rally


On Monday October 28th Doug Berry and I attended a rally at Queens park.
Unifor along with other union members mobilized for a Day of Action as Doug
Ford prepared to reconvene the Ontario legislature. Hundreds descended on
Queen’s Park to protest the premier’s return from nearly five months of
dodging public and media scrutiny throughout the federal election.


 

Congratulations to
our Newest Retirees
