Unifor Local 780G along with our National Union are working to build strong communities. We are building an effective union that works with our members to improve the lives of everyone living in the communities, and to extend the benefits of unionization to non-unionized workers across Canada. Education is one of the keys to caring and prosperous society.
We know that post-secondary education can be out of reach for many working-class children due to skyrocketing tuition fees. To assist members and their families in making education more accessible we have established the following awards and scholarships.
