The past year, marked by a once-in-a-century pandemic, has seen 19 Unifor members die on the job and from the COVID-19 virus now entering a third wave of infections across the country.
“To lose even one member is difficult, and to see 19 die in just one year is simply devastating,” Unifor National President Jerry Dias said.
“Nineteen said goodbye to a loved one in the morning, never to see them again. Nineteen people died in entirely preventable ways. It is truly tragic.”
