Labour Day message from Local 793 Business Manager, Mike Gallagher:

On behalf of myself, the Officers, Executive Board and Staff of IUOE, Local 793, I would like to wish you and your loved ones a happy Labour Day long weekend.

For many, Labour Day signifies the end of summer and the beginning of a new school year. It is a day of rest and, for unions and labour activists, a day to represent success in the ongoing fight against anti-union laws, gaining fair wages and benefits, and improving health and safety for workers.

Our achievements are not possible without the collective struggles and actions of those in the past. Local 793 is unyielding as we continuously grow our union and build a prosperous, safe future for Operating Engineers across Ontario and Nunavut.

I encourage all members and their families to attend one of the many parades held around the province on Monday (Sunday in Oshawa) and at the Local 793-organized events. CLICK HERE for details about the parades and events in various districts.

Please be advised that all Local 793 offices across the province will be closed on Monday, Sept. 4, 2023. Regular office hours will resume on Tuesday, Sept. 5, 2023.

Fraternally yours,

Mike Gallagher
