Over the decades he’d been a Steward, a member of the in-plant lant executive (most recently as Unit Chair), a member of the 864 Executive, the Eastern Provinces Council Board (recently as Secretary Treasurer, and on numerous negotiating committees. He has a wealth of experience and knowledge that he is taking into his well-deserved retirement. He was respected by everyone at the workplace, Management and Union alike. He plans to spend his time enjoying time with his family and friends doing all the activities that keep him young. We wish Bim all the best in the future and will miss his smiling face and ready laugh at Union events and roaming the halls at Cavendish Farms.
