  • Members We know this continues to be a challenging time for you.  Unfortunately, the continuing state of emergency will keep Legion Branch 163 closed.  We know there is concern about when they will be able to re-open and what that will look like for them long term.  We hope you have all been successful in being able to apply for EI benefits, though we know the wait times are significant as the huge influx of applications are being processed.   Our understanding is that those of you who have already applied to EI will be automatically transferred to the CERB (Canada Emergency Response Benefit) without you having to do anything on your end, and that this would also apply to EI applications already received, but not yet processed.  If you have any questions relating to your EI application the best resource is Service Canada. You can call the EI telephone information service at 1-800-206-7218 from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday to Friday and press “0” to talk to a representative. Please note that call volumes are high at the present time and you may be placed on hold. If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to your Unit Chair, Stacey at stacey.burns@unifor5555.ca.

  • Local 5555 News Logo

    Welcome to Unifor Local 5555’s new website! The new site has been completely redesigned from the ground up to help serve the members and the community at large, Just a quick tour: The Main page now works like a newspaper – get all the latest news from 5555. You will also see in the top menu links to everything on the website. The sidebar also has an events calendar where Local and local events can be seen. Units – Each Unit of Local 5555 now has it’s own dedicated page where you can find Unit specific information and documents as well as the latest news posts. Retirees – without our retirees fighting fo us in the past we wouldn’t be where we are today as a Local so they get their own page 🙂 Standing Committees – Each Standing Committee now has it’s own page as well with descriptions and contact info. Newsletters – Find and read all current and past editions. Contacts – The old website had contact all over the place so it has now been combined into one place to make things easy to find. All in all we’ve gone for a simpler design to make things easier and more logical to find. Enjoy!! Allan Fisher.
