2018 CALM award for Best Photograph.
Quebec City – May 31, 2018 – UFCW Canada Local Unions earned three prestigious awards at this year’s Canadian Association of Labour Media (CALM) Awards, in recognition of our union's long-established role as a leading communicator within the Canadian labour movement.
UFCW Canada Local 1518 won the award for Excellence in Print Writing for its feature story entitled “Dangerous Homes: Exploring Violence in Homecare Work.” Written by UFCW 1518 Communications Assistant Diana Perez, the article examines the unique occupational health and safety hazards experienced by workers in the community health sector.
