WHAT IS AN ACTION CENTRE?

It is a facility that has been set up for all GM CAMI Assembly Plant employees affected by the layoffs in July and August 2017.  The purpose of the Action Centre is to help you find that next job or training opportunity.  Or perhaps you need help in preparing for your job search?  We have boards with job opportunities that will be taken from internet job sites or those that are called in by local or out of town businesses. These boards will be updated daily. We will schedule workshops to begin in late September 2017, based on the needs reported in the employee questionnaires. Resume writing and interview skills are the most urgently needed. Workshops will be arranged for these skills at the Centre. The Centre will be staffed by our Coordinator Bob Craig and peer helpers who can assist you in accessing the Centre‚Äôs computers, printer/copier and resources.  Until the Action Centre is operational, there is no telephone number but any inquiries can be emailed to gmcamiunifor88ac@gmail.com

 

EMPLOYMENT INSURANCE

 Just a friendly reminder, you should apply for Employment Insurance as soon as possible after your last day worked.  This will help prevent any loss of benefits for weeks for which you might otherwise have been entitled.   

The GM CAMI Unifor 88 Action Centre is funded in part by the Government of Canada, Government of Ontario and GM CAMI Assembly Plant and supported byUnifor Local 88.

THANK YOU !!

The adjustment committee would like to thank Community Employment Services (CES) Woodstock for agreeing to hold the Administration duties to allow the  Adjustment Committee and the Action Centre to function to support the affected workers of GM CAMI Assembly Plant.
