Check out the latest edition of the PPWC Leaflet, with an article by CCU Secretary Leanne Shumka on the history of the CCU on its 50th anniversary.
Another season rolls on and that brings more experience for myself. We have begun to step up the social media pages beginning with the Twitter account @PPWCunion and our Facebook page. Times are hard for a lot of our brothers and sisters right now and we wanted to focus on promoting the strength of the union in our recent posts.
Christina from the National office and I will be attending a conference with the Canadian Association of Labour Media. From this conference, our goal is to further understand how to use social media as an ally and begin to create a strategy on what and when to post.
This quarter’s leaflet was completed with a lot of effort by Christina Nelson as usual and I need to thank her for her contributions every time this Leaflet is released. With tough times around my job at Ladysmith Sawmill, it has made for a strange few months, but moving forward I’m hoping that we can continue to spread some more positive stories on our social media soon.
I hope that our brothers and sisters who are struggling through this tough time can get back to work sooner than later and resume the lives that we all worked so hard to achieve. That is when our social media would love to showcase stories of our members and continue the conversation of how proud we are to be in the PPWC. Happy Holidays to everyone out there and we hope to hear some better news as the year closes out.
