Hello Friends and Welcome to Operation Christmas Cheer!

Operation Christmas Cheer is only possible because of the compassion and generosity of many different unions and individual efforts from all across the province. It is an annual, worthwhile cause that brings a lot of happiness to union families facing adversity during the Holidays.

 

OCC'S only mandate it to deliver grass roots support and cheer to every single picket-line throughout Ontario over the Holidays. 

Every Year We Have ONE Mission.. 

Make sure every Sister and Brother walking a picket-line in Ontario receives Christmas Food Hampers packed with everything they need for a family Christmas dinner, grocery gift cards to buy what they need, TOYS for every child and lot's good will and solidarity to help lift spirits and cheer them on.  ONE. DAY. LONGER!  

 

Everyone fighting for their rights on a picket-line deserves to know that they are not forgotten and that all of organized labour is cheering them on!  This is what Operation Christmas Cheer does.  We do it because we can, because it's true meaning solidarity it's grass-roots support that directly benefits our Sisters & Brothers on strike or lockout over the Holidays.  We are able to deliver much needed cheer because of supporters like You!  Thank-You for all your support and for helping to make Christmas a little brighter for so many in need  ❤️

"Picket-line solidarity is one of the foundations of trade unionism where the smallest acts of kindness, encouragement, and support give members the strength needed to continue the fight for a fair settlement.  Be Union – Buy Union – Support Union!"
