Local 793’s finances remain healthy, the pension and benefit plans are on solid footing, and the purchase of regional property in Barrie, Sarnia, Hamilton, and Thunder Bay to further service members and increase training opportunities remains a top priority.

That was some of the key messages Business Manager Mike Gallagher gave to members at the Special Executive Board Meeting and General Membership Meeting this past weekend at the O.E. Banquet & Conference Centre in Oakville.

It was the first of these meetings since September 2019 and the first gathering at the banquet hall since the 100th Anniversary Dinner-Dance in December 2019. Everyone in attendance was required to be fully vaccinated as per provincial government rules for indoor gatherings and required to wear masks throughout the meeting.

For more information about the General Membership Meeting, see the full report in the upcoming holiday issue of Making Tracks.
