Welcome to the Niagara Falls-Hamilton Unit - this is  your one-stop shop for Unit news, events, links to meeting minutes, and how to participate.

Honesty. Integrity. Fairness. Equality. Respectful Treatment. Family Consideration. Common Sense. Decisions Benefiting the Members. Decisions Promoting the Workers. Involvement (including stakeholders). Democratic Processes... These are the values & beliefs of CUSW and they are printed on the inside the front cover of our constitution.  A constitution written and governed by the member, for the member. Let the "red book" be your guide.  Contact members of the  Unit Executive via [email protected] with any questions, comments or suggestions you have. All member suggestions for content are welcomed and encouraged.

The first two are scheduled for 7:30pm Wednesday, January 27, 2021  &  7:30 pm Wednesday, February 10, 2021, with the zoom link for each sent closer to the day .
