USW Family Day BBQ

As an act of promoting solidarity within Nunatsiavut, the United Steelworkers Union (USW) Local 9508 is hosting a Family Day Barbecue in several Nunatsiavut communities.

Union members of the Local 9508 have traveled from Happy Valley-Goose Bay to Nain, Hopedale and Makkovik.

Kim Oliver is a member of the Union.

She says herself and Billy Blake will be the hosts in Nain.

Oliver says they will start preparing for the barbecue around 4pm and will be serving hot-dogs and hamburgers at 5pm.

She says there will be tickets drawn on USW shirts and hats.

They will also have prizes for a fishpond game for children.

Oliver adds everything is free and encourages everyone to come out to the Husky Center and have a great time.
