Brothers and Sisters,
The Company has formally informed the Local 707 President’s office and Local 707 membership of the following temporary Production and Skilled Trades lay-offs.
For those that have to start a new Employment Insurance claim or need to re-open their existing claim (as you previously declared that you returned to work full time), our Union Benefit Rep Paul Ivey is in the process of attempting to obtain a new reference code from Service Canada. He hopes to be able to provide this and post on our site early next week, so members may use it with their Employment Insurance application
For those that are still able to report to Service Canada with their existing personal access code, continue to do so to claim for E.I benefits.
I will continue to update the membership with further information, as it becomes available.
President, Unifor Local 707
