Uniform to provide update on former National President Jerry Dias


Uniform will provide an update this afternoon on the complaint filed against former Uniform National President Jerry Dias.

Canada’s largest private sector union says the update will be broadcast on its Facebook page at 1 pm EDT.

On March 14, Unifor issued a statement saying that the union’s secretary-treasurer Lana Payne was sent a complaint about Dias on Jan. 26 that alleged he had breached the union’s constitution.

The union, which represents 315,000 workers, said at the time it had no further details to add about the matter.

Dias was notified of an independent investigation on Jan. 29, Unifor says, and went on medical leave on Feb. 6.

Citing health issues, Dias subsequently notified Unifor’s executive board on March 11 that he would retire immediately.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published March 23, 2022
