It’s a fitting tribute for a man who did so much for the labour movement in Chatham-Kent.

The Aaron De Meester Labour Community Service Award will honour the former president of the Chatham-Kent Labour Council and president of the CAW Local 127 Retirees’ Chapter.

Spokesperson Brian Armitage says De Meester’s work needs to be remembered.”So in conjunction with the Labour Community Awards that we do on an annual basis, we’re dedicating a plaque in his name for people who will continue to receive the award.”

De Meester passed away nearly two years ago.The awards are normally handed out in May.
