Whether you’ve just joined the IUPAT because you’re new to union jobs, or you’ve been a member of our union in Toronto and Ontario for numerous years, you know that we are devoted to progress in all its forms. As of January 13, 2016, Greg Smith has been appointed interim Business Manager/Secretary-Treasurer of Painters and Allied Trades District Council 46.
To better serve our members, the IUPAT DC 46 unveiled its Union Health and Dental Centre on Toro Road, Toronto, this past year. The goal of the Centre has always been to provide a one-stop healthcare resource location for members of IUPAT involved in trades ranging from painting to drywall finishing, as well as their families. Now, a new service has been unveiled: a state-of-the-art optical center.
