Local 8782 was first chartered in 1979. With more then 1100 brothers and sisters working in the steel industry in Nanticoke Ontario we are proud Canadian steelworkers and we collective bargain for Stelco LEW, Stelco Pickling Division, Harsco and ESM.
Today, United Steel Worker Local 8782 President, Randy Graham, presented the Salvation Army with close to 300, pre-packed, Back Packs for distribution to those families in need within the Haldimand/Norfolk area. This was a three fold increase from last years efforts. We would like to thank Stelco for their generous donation to help with the cost of the back packs. We would also like to thank all the members of Local 8782 who helped sell tickets and those who purchased tickets to raise the funds required. Pictured is Randy Graham, President, Donna Wingrove, Financial Secretary, Terri Simmons, Salvation Army and Kattie Chroncharsky, Salvation Army.

ATTENTION ALL USW LOCAL 8782 RETIREES.
We have received this email from Morneau Shepell ( your pension administrators )
It has come to our attention that duplicate copies of the tax slips were mailed to the Stelco retirees in the Lake Erie Union Legacy and New Plans. Each retiree will receive the tax forms twice. In the vast majority of cases, the tax slips are identical and the retiree can use either one of the duplicate forms to file their tax return.
There are approximately 27 retirees in the Plans for whom an adjustment was done to the tax form prior to mailing. The original unadjusted form was inadvertently sent out in addition to the adjusted form when the duplicates forms were mailed. In these cases, the two tax slips are not identical. We will be reaching out by mail, to each of the retirees who received an adjusted tax form, to advise of the correct tax slip to use.
Terry Barnard will also be reaching out to the 27 retirees who have two different tax forms.
Please note that the correct information was provided to Canada Revenue Agency.
We apologize for any confusion this may cause.
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE CALL MORNEAU SHEPELL 1-844-650-2820

On December 9/19, Our local President Randy Graham, on behalf of Local 8782 and the Steelworkers National Office, presented a $1750.00 cheque to Al Martens of the Simcoe Caring Cupboard. This money comes from the Steelworker Humanity fund. This year the Steelworkers distributed $229,750.00 to 112 food banks across Canada. Over $19,000.00 was given to local food banks in our surrounding area.
