The ACWR thanks its partner and sponsor UNIFOR local 200 for sponsoring the “Working with the Environment” Art Show Awards including Judges First, Second and Third Place awards ($400, $300, $200) and Troy Brian People’s Choice Award ($100).

PEOPLE CHOICE AWARD – $100

online voting will begin Tuesday May 10 9am and will end Friday May 13 3pm

Vote Now

The People’s Choice award is named in honour of the commitment and dedication of Unifor member Troy Brian. Troy Brian is a long time social and environmental activist. His most pressing concern has always been to have people believe that caring for your environment is not just the right thing to do; it is a necessary practice that affects all living things. He was co-founder and co-coordinator of the local 200 & 444 environment committees’ efforts to develop a community environment art contest. The first decision was that this art must make an environmental statement. In this manner, all involved would have to think about our environment.

ABOUT UNIFOR

As Canada’s largest private sector union with more than 310,000 members in every major sector of the economy, Unifor is committed to creating a strong and effective union – making positive change in communities and workplaces across the country. Its’ members bring a modern approach to unionism: adopting new tools, involving and engaging their members, and always looking for new ways to develop the role and approach of the union to meet the demands of the 21st century. Unifor is a new kind of union, one that advocates on behalf of all working people (employed or unemployed) right across the country and believes that every person of working age in Canada has a right to a good job and the benefits of economic progress.
