Moving into the Next 100 Years

As Local 5167 moves into the next 100 years, it can look back on a century of progress in securing better wages and working conditions for its members, fighting for social change and being on the frontlines of advocacy for workers. And more changes are on the horizon.

As the city of Hamilton grows, the Local will continue to welcome more members into its ranks. These new members, for the first time, include part-time workers, who now have a seat at the bargaining table. Although Local 5167 has a long history of including part-timers in its collective agreements, they had not had a voice at the table until early 2018.
