LOCAL 584
75th Anniversary
November 23, 2019

Message from President Jerry Dias

On behalf of Unifor and our 315,000 members, I extend my heartfelt congratulations on the 75th anniversary of UAW, CAW, and now Unifor Local 584. This is an incredible milestone and an important day for the entire Unifor family. The leadership and membership of Local 584, both past and present, have an earned legacy of committed labour and social activism.

You are a local union who has always punched above your weight at the bargaining table. Your participation at the master bargaining table and in the collective bargaining process has helped produce significant gains not just for Ford workers and their families, but for all workers in Canada.

Local 584 has a rich and proud history marked by sacrifice, support, commitment and most importantly, solidarity. Local 584 demonstrated these qualities from the time of its inception, offering financial and other support to Ford Windsor workers during their historic 99 day strike in 1945. This at a time when Local 584's general fund was barely enough to sustain itself. This action wasn’t just a charitable deed at a time of relative scarcity and rampant poverty, it was more than anything a deeply political act of solidarity in a time of crisis. An act of solidarity that would contribute to Ford workers achieving one of the most important wins in Canadian labour history.

I am sorry I could not be with you as you celebrate. Today, I am addressing our members gathered for this years BC Regional Council. However, together we can share our thoughts about both the past and the future. The strength you bring to the Unifor family through your history of solidarity and commitment will be needed now more than ever, as workers rights’ continue to be attacked and as our union continues to fight for those less fortunate than ourselves. I know Local 584 will continue to be an active participant in advancing workers rights.

Once again, on behalf of the 315,000 members of Unifor across Canada, I offer my personal congratulations as you celebrate your 75th year and wish you all the best as we look forward to the next 75 years ahead.

In solidarity,
Jerry Dias
National President

Obituary for Vaughn
Edward Geldart

Vaughn Edward Geldart
April 04, 1933- February 7, 2019


Born in Cholchester County ,Nova Scotia

Surrounded by family

Survived by his three daughters Elaine Moore (Randy), Julie Charles (Jim), Marianne Turner (Terry).
Grandchildren Leigh-Anne Marquis (Andrew), Allison Bisram (Faith), Jamie Charles, Christopher Charles (Mike), Kevin Charles (Nicole), Jennifer Turner-Wiggins (Tom), Brian Turner (Tara)
Great-grandchildren Moechia, Zachary, Nathan, Bella, Isaac, Lily, Kaylee.

Predeceased by his wife Dolly Geldart (1991); father Walter, mother Francis; siblings Delbert, Roland, Eric, and Delena

There will be no more morning daily trips on the scooter to the coffee shop to enjoy conversation with the geezers; to solve all the worlds problems with nothing going according to plan.

Downtown Brampton’s ice cream and pretzel shops will see a drop in sales, but will have to worry less about the risk of broken windows from Vaughn banging on the window to let them know he’s outside waiting. To the owner of his favourite downtown breakfast place, it is okay to be late.

Much appreciation to Veterans Affairs and the Palliative Care Team for their compassion.

It was Vaughn’s request to be cremated immediately following his passing; with no funeral service.

Please join us in a celebration of Vaughn's life on Sunday February 17th, between the hours of 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm at Alderlea, 40 Elizabeth Street South, Brampton.
