"The Kitchener office is now servicing Cambridge, Waterloo and surrounding area and I congratulate the staff and the local union. I think this will be a very functional place and shows that our union is committed to our membership in this area as well as committed to the community."
Hargrove told union leadership from the Waterloo Region that the Kitchener office brings the union's network of regional offices close to completion.

"We're working on our office in Ottawa and it will fulfill Jimmy and my commitment when we took over the leadership of the union to make sure that we had good facilities for the office to work out of and for the local union people and our members to come in and talk about the issues that are important to the union."
Hargrove said the regional offices not only allow the union to better service its members it also serves as a symbol.

"...We are part of the community. We want to show that we are part of the community and we are a social union. We want the best of facilities for our leadership to work at it, our membership to access it for meetings, or to come into when they have a problem."
"But, the important part of service is for the companies and the governments that we deal with, and the community to know, that we are a sophisticated organization, committed to the betterment of our members, their families and also to our community and our country."

The Kitchener office located adjacent to the 401 is ideally situated to service CAW locals throughout the Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Stratford and Guelph area.
