President's Update 

Week of June 9

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.
  • We had our monthly union meeting Monday afternoon. Some topics that were discussed:
    • ES&S negotiating their contract which expires July 1st 
    • The land sales currently before the courts
    • Upcoming picnic in August, with more details to follow
    • The possibility of having our union meetings on Zoom
    • The error in the mass text that went out to everyone, it was not hacked
    • Follow up on summer students

Some sad new. A recent retiree from Plant Services, Kevin McKenzie passed away last week. He worked in the plant for 12 years and retired December 2022. Our deepest sympathies to his loved ones.

  • We had a question about the building of homes on the Stelco land sale and what our position was. When the County had a meeting about the MZO back in 2022, we expressed our disapproval of re-zoning the lands. Subsequently the MZO request was rejected.
  • We had a situation in the Caster with a summer student. I want to thank our brothers and sisters for their support to the students. This was a great example of unity that this local needs. We have asked Human Resources for an investigation into this matter and are expecting a response shortly.
  • I have been out to the MERC, CMC, Caster, Blast Furnace and Pig Caster this week and last
  • I will have some contract books with me incase you are in need of them.

 I look forward to seeing everyone as I get out into the plant,

John McElroy

President USW Local 8782
