Local 8782 was first chartered in 1979. With more then 1100 brothers and sisters working in the steel industry in Nanticoke Ontario we are proud Canadian steelworkers and we collective bargain for Stelco LEW, Stelco Pickling Division, Harsco and ESM.
We are saddened to announce that Ron passed away on July 15/2018. Ron was a long time pickle line employee, he was also the bargaining unit Health and Safety co-chairperson for many years. We are unaware of any arrangements for Ron.
Today, on behalf of United Steel Worker Local 8782, The Local's President Randy Graham along with Stelco's representative Renee VanKooten presented a cheque to the Salvation Army. Our annual Gate Collection raised $20,050. Plus 600 lbs of food and toys for the Haldimand/Norfolk Salvation Army. Best year so far! Thank you to everyone!
