Our Union is proud to welcome the new members at National Diabetes Trust, who join our Union family and will enjoy the benefit of being Union alongside colleagues at two other locations in the GTA.

The newly unionized employees at National Diabetes Trust in Hamilton collect public donations of unwanted gently used clothing and household items to support the charity. Drivers collect the donated items at donation boxes located in the Hamilton region.

This month-long campaign to unionize was led by two members who fought for higher wages, improved job security, and among other things, respect and dignity on the job.

“These new members have been through a lot during these difficult times, and deserve the opportunity to use collective bargaining to achieve improvements. Our Organizing team did an amazing job with this campaign and we look forward to seeing positive changes for these workers,” said President Shawn Haggerty.
