Retiree Terry Falle Passes
away June 5, 2022

Retired October 1, 2002
30 Years service

We were just notified of the
Passing of Terry Falle.
Our Deepest condolences goes out to
his wife Rosiland and his entire family.
Terry will be missed by all who knew him.

 


FALLE, Terrence (Terry) Raymond

 

Died peacefully in the early morning of Sunday June 5th, 2022 in his 80th year after a brief stay at Campbell House Hospice in Collingwood.

Terry will be deeply missed by his loving wife Rosiland. Cherished and beloved father and step-father to Colleen, Stephen (Mary Jo), Allan (Tammy), Christine (Danny).

Adoring “Papa” to his grand children - Melissa, Michael, Eric, Zachary, Cole, Andrew, Sarah & Nicholas, great grand children, Mavric, Soren Freya. 

He is lovingly remembered by his sisters Donna, Debbie, Crystal, and brother Butch. Pre-deceased by his brothers Brian and Mike and parents Golda & Raymond.

His quiet and patient demeanor, gentle spirit and extreme generosity were many of his endearing qualities, he was always up for a game of pool or a friendly arm wrestle.

He enjoyed a competitive game of golf with his work buddies from the Ford Motor Company, Bramalea even scoring his first “hole-in-one”
He retired in Wasaga Beach in 2003 with his wife, where they enjoyed many walks along the Georgian Bay coastline with his canine buddy Biscuit.

Cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will be taking place at White Chapel Cemetery in Hamilton at later date.

Donations will be gladly accepted and appreciated for Campbell House Hospice in Collingwood.  Arrangements entrusted to Affordable Cremation Services, Collingwood.

Delegates in a group photo at Unifor’s 2022 BIWOC Conference


BIWOC conference had a poignant theme, aviation workshop on tech change, Manitoba Hydro rotating strikes, Jack Saddleback leads discussion at Indigenous Day webinar, Unifor will be at Toronto Caribbean Carnival, Bell Clerical votes to strike, Toronto Police race data confirms what we already knew, National Day for Truth and Reconciliation recognized as a holiday at Enbridge, plus inflation factsheet.

Local 681 president Victor Diduch speaks at a microphone at a rally with a crowd of members standing behind him.

Unifor Local 681 members at Manitoba Hydro began rotating strikes on June 17. Watch the rally and hear about what's at stake for these members who worked during the pandemic on the front lines of in-home service.

On Aug. 6, 2022, as part of the Aviation Council meeting, Unifor will be running a one-day workshop to gather information to help local unions prepare their collective agreements for Technological Change. Deadline for registration is July 22 at 5 p.m.

Dereck Berry was voted in as Unifor’s National Executive Board Member for BIWOC

The three-day Black, Indigenous and Workers of colour (BIWOC) conference – which took place in-person June 17 to 19, 2022, in Port Elgin, Ont. – had a poignant theme this year: “Practicing radical self-care is an act of activism.”

Jack Saddleback speaking on a videoconference call.

On National Indigenous Peoples' Day guest speaker Jack Saddleback led a webinar discussion about gender diversity in Indigenous communities.



Participants at the 2019 Toronto Caribbean Carnival in Unifor’s section, with red banner in the background.

After two years of missing the parade because of COVID-19, communities are gathering at the 2022 Toronto Caribbean Carnival July 30 with Unifor’s presence – in the union’s signature red and white colours.

Bell clerical bargaining committee poses in front of a campaign banner.

Bell clerical workers issued a historic strike vote this weekend, marking the first time this group has ever taken a strike vote during negotiations.



Striking workers picket at The Bay’s Fulfillment Centre

E-commerce warehouse workers at The Bay take strike action after Canada’s flagship retailer refused retroactive pay after workers continued to provide services without a contract during the pandemic.

Black protesters clashing with police holding shields.

The Toronto Police releasing race-based data that affirms BIPOC were disproportionately targeted by officers is merely a first step. The data is what BIPOC communities have always known.


A woman walks in Afghanistan

Canada has been a welcoming place for refugees, including from Ukraine, but must treat all refugees equally. Afghan refugees are facing long delays, despite early promises. For World Refugee Day, Unifor commits to ensuring all refugees are treated equally.

A female hospitality worker holds up her hand to signal 'stop'

The deadline to complete the Hospitality, Gaming and Airline sector survey on sexual harassment has been extended to June 30! Take the survey to help Unifor and Western University better understand the challenges you face on the job.
