On October 7th, 2021, BCTGM Local 264 (Toronto) held a day of union generosity to provide members formerly employed by Del’s Pastry with union foods to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving. Del’s Pastry was destroyed by a fire on June 15th, 2021.
According to BCTGM Canadian Vice President Ron Piercey, the party lasted more than six hours. Union members dropped in and out of the event throughout the day as some members are working at other places while they wait for the Company to rebuild. “There was a great turnout and the members were so appreciative of the Local’s support for them,” said Piercey.
The day of food and fellowship ended with each member leaving with a bag filled with union made products donated by various BCTGM contracted companies. The Local gifted each member a Thanksgiving turkey and all the trimmings.
