Our members take great pride in their communities right across this great province and contribute millions of dollars and countless volunteer hours annually. At the community level, our members coach sports teams, participate in after-school programs, volunteer for their local fire departments, and help raise funds for local charities and causes that better the overall life experience for everyone.
The PWU believes that we all benefit from sharing our energy, knowledge and experience to make our communities happy, healthy and safe places for all.

The PWU’s Community Volunteer Selection Committee selects these award recipients from a list of nominees. The following criteria are used to select award recipients: the number of hours and or years of community volunteering; the number of volunteer organizations the individual supports; and the results of their tireless work.
At the 71st PWU Council of Chief Stewards, President Mel Hyatt presented the annual PWU community volunteer awards, one for a deserving member from each of the three sectors and one from the Retired Workers’ Chapter. Although none of the recipients was seeking any recognition for their efforts they can be sure that PWU members are proud of them. Each one received a Canadian made PWU winter jacket, a certificate of recognition and a donation of $1,000 in their name to a charitable organization of their choice.
Sector 1: Denise McKay
Sector 2: Heather Bouley
Sector 3: Brandon Riddiford
Retired Workers’ Chapter: Reino Pitkanen
