Thank you, Phil Vivyurka

Phil Vivyurka, our current VP, is taking a break and will not be continuing on in his role. I am hoping that Phil gets some rest, relaxation and hopefully comes back soon to help and support us all in whatever capacity he is wanting. Phil has given so very much to Local 101 and a great activist. His knowledge, expertise and experience cannot be replaced. Thanks so much Phil for everything you have done and for your support and mentorship all these years.

A Great Loss…

CONSTANT, Joseph H. – After a brief illness Joseph H. Constant passed away at home on July 7th, 2016 at the age of 75. Loving father of Debbie (Bryan) and Paul. Proud grandfather of Carly, Cole and Taylor. Dear brother of Don Constant. Joe will be fondly remembered by Carole Constant (Bill Reid), Ed and Ted Tomkowiak, Tonya Poirier and many other friends. After over 40 years of being employed with the City of London and later the City of St. Thomas Joe touched many lives.

Visitors will be received at the JOHN T. DONOHUE FUNERAL HOME , 362 Waterloo Street, London on Sunday, July 17th 2016 from 2-4 o’clock. Cremation has taken place.

Joesph Constant


Not everyone will know Joe as he retired some time ago from Ontario Works, but he had an incredible impact on so many people he worked with. He trained so many of us and was a fantastic mentor to us all.

If you knew Joe, please attend the visitation to honour his life and what he has given our city, our Local and to each of you he was friends with.
