David Chartrand, IAM Canadian General Vice-President met with the new Executive Board of Local Lodge 3111 CULR. The members are all workers at the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) and are located across Canada and joined the IAM in 2018.
Chartrand was accompanied by Chief-of-Staff Gord Falconer and Canadian Research Director Ivana Saula.
The discussions today were constructive, insightful and pleasant overall, with many ideas shared. “The newly-elected Executive Board members are motivated, and this was exciting to see,” said Chartrand, who has been criss-crossing the country and meeting with rank-and-file members, locals and districts throughout his term.
It was the kick-off for the “site visits” of local lodges in Ontario and the GVP is currently scheduling meeting with local lodges in the province.
