Congratulations to CUPE 1560, representing secretaries and maintenance staff in the Avalon East Region, on being awarded Corporate Citizen of the Year by the Terra Nova Council 1452 of the Knights of Columbus. The award was presented to the union local for their efforts in assisting the K of C in their many community activities and programs.
We talked in depth about community involvement and how we can work with our community groups to build stronger ties between ourselves and those who depend on our services. Local 1560 has built a tremendous relationship with the Knights, which is the talk of the town. In fact, our Local reps discussed how to further build our community ties with the Knights on October 5 of this year, during our National Rebuilding Strong Communities drive. I’ve since discussed this initiative with the Local Executive. We have many great ideas in the works for October 5.
