Membership in Hudbay’s Quarter Century Club climbed on Friday night with the presentation of watches to 29 employees who have completed 25 years of continuous service with the Company. M.C. Cal Huntley says this club probably represents close to 100 thousand years of service. Hudbay President David Garofalo congratulated the award recipients and all employees. He says there are very few camps like the one they have here in northern Manitoba with the kind of continuity they have in their workforce, the multi-generational culture that they have here, the pride not only in their long service by their safety and their productivity. He says it really is the heart and soul of the company.
Safety awards were presented to 28 employees with 25 years, 11 with 30 years and 15 with 35 years without a lost time accident and Province of Manitoba Long Term Service Awards were presented to two members of Hudbay’s Fire Department Ron Mendro and Allan Broughton.
