Cornwall Ontario — The Cornwall and District Labour Council is holding its annual Labour Awards Dinner, Wednesday, November 20th, at the Navy Veterans’ Club in Cornwall. Awards are being given for Health and Safety Activism, Union Activism, ODRT (Occupational Disability Response Team, for assisting injured workers in re-integraating into the workplace) and finally Community Activism. The keynote speaker is Mark Evard, national president of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW). The labour council said it is proud to present Mark Evard of CUPW. This union was legislated back to work after a series of rotating two years ago and only recently settled the contract that was in dispute in 2011. Mark Evard’s presentation is newsworthy because of the proposal the union has made in response to loss of snail mail to email, with the resulting loss of jobs.
