MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
As another busy year is coming to an end, this is the time to reflect on the year past and begin looking ahead to next year. I have been thinking a lot about this last year, and all of the great things we’ve accomplished to strengthen both our membership and our industry.
Among many noteworthy accomplishments, I am proud to have been able to finalize an enhanced pension plan for members this year. Additionally, our win on temporary foreign workers, and ongoing great work with the recruitment initiative are all contributing to a stronger union and a stronger Canadian maritime industry.
I am beyond proud to lead our union through these victories. We are able to demonstrate time and time again that the SIU of Canada truly is stronger together.
This is a time to be thankful for what we have and enjoy quality time with those who we hold dear.
Happy holidays to all!
James Given, President
