On Thursday, March 23, 2017 — Local 79 turned 75 and kicked-off what’s planned to be a year of celebrations. On our 75th birthday, we held an event at City Hall and watched as Local 79’s flag was raised on the City of Toronto’s flagpole. Local 79 members and friends were invited for a light lunch.
Local 79 was joined by some special guests, including City Councillors Mike Layton, Joe Cressy, Paula Fletcher, Glenn De Baeremaeker, and Gord Perks; CUPE Ontario President Fred Hahn, and many others.
