President's Update

Thank you for taking the time to visit your USW local 8782 website. As the newly elected President my goal is to keep the members informed as much as possible on current issues. I plan on using this platform right now to provide information.
  • On May 27th we had a Special Meeting to answer any questions on the Employee Life and Health Trust (ELHT) and the roles of the Trustees.
  • There was a change to the Pickle Lines recently. On May 24th Manulife updated their web portal and in doing so transferred Members money from one account to another but made it look like a full withdrawal. Rest assured your money is still there.
  • Anyone needing any help with Weekly Indemnity paperwork or anything to do with W.S.I.B. claims please contact Jamie Knowles. 519-587-2000 ext. 2290
  • Anyone looking to retire soon or have retiree questions please contact Rob Bussey for information. 519-587-2000 ext. 2250
  • If any Apprentice is having issues with getting their letter to write their C of Q please contact Joint Trades Training Coordinator John Phibbs in the plant ext. 5039.
  • Our Grievance Committee is hard at work. They are currently taking 4 terminations to Arbitration plus working up 2 more policy grievances (Management doing bargaining unit work, and the prescription deductible issue)
  • Our Contract books have been distributed. If you have not received one please email this website.
  • Upcoming this summer Local 8782 will be hosting a picnic that is being run by the Next Gen Committee. Anyone interested in volunteering to help please email this website.

I look forward to seeing everyone as I am out in the plant.
