When Viking Air and Unifor 114 come together for United Way, incredible things happen. At Viking, the employer and the union come together every year to work towards a common goal – making their community a better place for everyone.
This relationship is an example of the power of cooperation and collaboration. In the words of Viking Air President and CEO Dave Curtis, “We put our tools down and we work together”. National Representative for Unifor, Stu Shields echo’s Curtis’ remarks, “It’s not just about building aircrafts…it’s about building community”.
Having the employer and the union jointly endorse and support the campaign has allowed the Viking campaign to see immense success over the years. As a result of this relationship, Viking Air and Unifor 114 were awarded the Labour Partnership Spirit Award for 2015.
Supporting the community is part of their core fabric at Viking and in Unifor and that is obvious in the thought and time they invest in running a successful campaign every year!
Thank you for helping us build community and for demonstrating that we are stronger together!
