Unifor Local 584
Thanksgiving
Food Drive 2017

President of Unifor Local 584 Barb Morrison (Right) and Chris Wilski Unifor Local 584 Retirees Chair congratulating each other on our successful accomplishment.


Unifor Local 584 retirees and actives (Ford Warehouse) partnered together to host our 8th annual Food Drive for the Knights Table of Brampton this past weekend.

Together we raised a whopping 1,973 lbs of food for the needy families in our community during this Thanksgiving festive season.  Last month the challenge went out again to the Ford warehouse from the Retirees to see who could raise the most food and the active members in the plant came through with flying colours raising a total of 1,037 lbs, the most ever collected while the retirees who have come out ahead every year and were able to collect  936 lbs and $200 cash.

Every year Local 584 puts us on the map as an organization that cares about our community. Our involvement in actions like this sends a signal to the public that Unions serve an important role in our communities as do the retirees and actives.  We want to congratulate all the members of Unifor Local 584 on their generosity and for a  job well done.

Also thank you to Local 584 for hosting the Retirees Thanksgiving Luncheon again this year. It not only gives the retirees a chance to rekindle old friendships but also gives us the opportunity to hold our Food Drive. A big thank you goes out to Dwayne Decoste, Barb Morrison, Chris Wilski, Geoff Riddle, Doug Berry (partner Jean Cameron), Pauline Wilski, Tammy Dempsey, Arvin Gangwar, Mark Machado, Yvonne Rodney and Roz Monchamp for making this day a great success.
