One get-together; two good causes – Local 00978 supports United Way and EB Bargaining Team
Members of Agriculture Union Local 00978, language teachers at the Royal Military College of Canada, have been gathering for a weekly soup meal this autumn in support of Kingston, Ontario’s United Way campaign.
At the same time, these members of Education and Library Science (EB) bargaining unit have been locked, along with other Treasury Board employees, in a tough set of negotiations for a new collective agreement.
So, doing what came naturally, Local 00978 members in late November took the opportunity to send off a group photo wearing solidarity arm bands in support of their EB Bargaining Team.
Seen in the above photo are: (seated from the right) Local President Monique Haggar; A. Gianotti; U. Bender; and C. Warwick. Standing are members R. Cormier; M.P. Veillette; G. Vieth-Bell; T. Kang; M. Thivierge-Bournival; S. Gauthier; M. Tremblay; B. Côté; J.L. Gaudreault; and C. Lord.
