Local 793 members who attended the union’s general membership meeting March 29 selected a new emblem design for the union.
The local received 30 entries from 14 different candidates.
The emblem will be used on future promotional items of the union.
First place went to a submission from Local 793 director of communications Grant Cameron.
Second place went to a submission from Local 793 IT manager Armand Dowdall.
Third place was tied and went to submissions from Local 793 labour relations rep Daveen Lidstone and Grant Cameron.
The competition was open to all Local 793 staff and members in good standing, along with their children and grandchildren.
First prize was $1,000. Movie tickets are being awarded to all those who submited entries.
Those submitting entries were asked to include a symbol of Nunavut into their designs to represent that the local’s charter has been expanded to include the territory.
