Local 500 honours life member

November 04, 2019 at 9:08 PM

Local 500 welcomed Gary Swanson (Community Services Unit) into the honourary life membership at a dinner held on November 1, 2019. Also attending the dinner were honourary life members who received their award in previous years.

Honourary life membership is awarded to outstanding CUPE members for their services given to the Local over an extended period of time. Honorary life membership may also be given for meritorious service to the Local.

Life membership can be awarded when the person is within five years of retirement or after retirement or termination of their employment. 

Congratulations to Gary for his dedication and commitment to our Local and to the trade union movement over the years.
