Greetings Sisters and Brothers,
It is surprising how quickly a year passes, this year with COVID it seems to have passed even quicker. Under normal circumstances we would be planning our Annual Activist Day and Dinner to take place in October, this year with COVID restrictions in place we will unfortunately be unable to host an in person Activist Day and Dinner. This does not mean we will be overlooking the tremendous work that our Sisters and Brothers have done during the year. We know that Health & Safety for all workers has been the top priority, but we also know several sisters and brothers have continued to advance and promote the value of Labour. With that in mind we are seeking nominations for our annual Health & Safety Activist Award and Labour Council Activist award. We are working on a plan to host an ‘Online Celebration and Award presentation’ to take place on November 23, 2020, more details will follow as we confirm the agenda for the celebration and presentations.
Please see the attached Nomination forms for these two awards and send your nominations to me no later than October 25th so the GBLC executive is able to review the nominations during our Executive meeting on October 26th for discussion and selection during the regular meeting of GBLC that evening (October 26th at 7:00pm).
Kevin Smith, President
Grey Bruce Labour Council
