The International Union of Operating Engineers Local 793, in partnership with union employer Kerr Crane, participated in the 2018 Timmins Santa Claus Parade this past weekend.

Members and staff of the union created a float with the theme “Toy Land.”

Union members and crane operators Ben Daguerre and Wes Roy helped spearhead this first-time initiative for the Local in Timmins. Though it was a chilly night, 8,000-plus residents lined the streets of downtown Timmins. The event was televised on Eastlink TV and will be available on-demand soon.

Local 793 members and Kerr Crane agreed that with this year’s success, both will endeavour to participate in this event every year.

The staff and members of Local 793 Timmins Hall would like to wish all members a safe and happy Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a prosperous coming New Year!
