Union members are being invited to design an emblem for Local 793.

“This is a very special year for our union, as we are celebrating our 95th anniversary,” said Local 793 business manager Mike Gallagher. “I believe that a competition to design a union emblem is a good way to stir up interest in the history of our proud union and get members and their families involved.”

The competition is open to all Local 793 members in good standing, along with their children and grandchildren.

Deadline for submissions is Dec. 31, 2014.

The prize is $1,000.

The winner will be announced at the union’s general membership meeting on Sunday, March, 22, 2015 in the union’s banquet hall, 2245 Speers Rd., Oakville.

The emblem will be used on future promotional items that are distributed by Local 793.

Gallagher encouraged union members, their children and grandchildren to get involved in the competition and send in their best emblem designs.

“Our local is one of the largest and most respected construction unions in the province,” he said. “I hope that members and their families participate in this competition.”

Emblems can be emailed to executive@iuoelocal793.org. JPG, PDF or EPS files are preferred.
