USW Local 6166

President's Message

Good Evening Sisters, Brothers and Honoured Guests,

Welcome to our annual Day of Mourning Service. I am honoured and privileged to bring greetings on behalf of our members. This type of event does not take place without an organized team. Before I get into my message, I want to thank Brother Torrance Sukhbir, Worker Safety Representative in Maintenance, Utilities, Transportation and his committee for co-ordinating this event. I would also like to thank Brother Gord Medwid, Vice-President of USW Local 6166 and Worker Safety Representative for the Smelter for co-ordinating the Safe Workers of Tomorrow Program for the Frontier School Division. We also have a long history of working together with Vale to ensure that our young people, in particular, the High School students are presented the Safe Workers of Tomorrow program. This program is to ensure they understand their rights when they enter the workplace of their choice. This program has been supported both financially and with manpower in the past, by our partners in safety – VALE (this program is currently presented by presenters from Safe Workers of Tomorrow). They are to be commended for their foresight in supporting our young workers in this very important program.
