London Canada Brewery Union Honours Veterans

SEIU Local 2 Branch Local #1 in the London Ontario brewery were dealing with a problem. Due to food plant accreditation the wearing of poppies pinned to your work cloths was prohibited. The members have a long history of supporting the troops dating back to the turn of the century. Plus many of our retirees are veterans. The members wanted to continue this practice so they mounted Poppy flags at the plant entrances and donated $3000.00 to the local veterans. They also sell poppy stickers in the plant that are acceptable.
