Cote Nord Sledding Day

Six local unions from across the Cote Nord organized a community day featuring outdoor fun on the snow and ice. Lunch and maple products were provided, and USW leaders spoke about the union and its involvement in the community. The event was open to all local USW members, their families and the community, and its purpose was to create ties with families and the community.
