January 30, 2019 - Today, Local 1944 Executive Board members were sworn-in at the Leo W. Gerard Union Centre in Mississauga, Ontario. Congratulations are extended to the new Executive Board. 

Present for the Swearing-In Ceremony were Ken Neumann, National Director for Canada; Steve Hunt, District 3 Director, Alain Croteau, District 5 Director, Marty Warren, District 6 Director, Ron Wyatt, Local 1944 Administrator, Mark Rowlinson, Executive Assistant to the National Director for Canada, and John Perquin, from the USW International in Pittsburgh.

“It is a great honour to take on the responsibilities of President for Local 1944,” said Isabelle Miller, President of USW Local 1944. “It is now time to build a Local that works for our members, and this will be possible through open dialogue, gender and racial equity, and the restoration of true solidarity. There are challenges ahead, but I believe that if all work together, there is nothing we cannot achieve.”

The Executive Board has been meeting this week in strategy sessions with the Administration team. Local 1944 will remain under Administration until further notice.

In Solidarity,

Ron Wyatt
