Online Stores Survey Link

December 5, 2016

As you may know, our current contract expires at the end of December, and we are using this opportunity through bargaining to address various concerns from the membership.

To this end, we have created an online survey to canvas the local about your opinions on the current stores system.

Please visit our website uffw.ca to complete this brief but important survey.

Please contact Derek Balcaen at 204-294-6784, or dbalcaen@uffw.ca with any questions you may have regarding this project.

Jeff Derraugh presentation

November 28, 2016

Happy to present recently retired Jeff “The Chef” Derraugh with a new personalized jacket at today’s general membership meeting.

Jeff has been a tremendous supporter of our union and its associated charities over the years, and this presentation was much deserved.

Through the sale of his many cookbooks, Jeff has raised & donated a significant amount of funds to the Manitoba Fallen Firefighter Memorial.
