Thanksgiving Day in Canada has been a holiday on the second Monday of October since 1957; and is a chance for people to give thanks for a good harvest and other fortunes in the past year.
As union members, we give thanks to the builders of our Labour Movement; it’s because of them that today we reap the benefits of their hard work through our collective bargaining agreements and the legislation they fought so hard to put in place.
Please have an enjoyable and safe Thanksgiving long weekend, as this weekend comes with fun family time and good food. It is important to take the time to be with your family and friends and to put aside the stresses of your everyday work life.
This holiday Monday, October 9th, give thanks for the blessings in one’s life and a Happy Thanksgiving to you all !!!!
International Vice President
