Our second Olde Tyme Union Picnic of the year is THIS SATURDAY, August 12! We are excited to partner with the Cape Breton Unionized Trades Dragon Boat Festival and will have a ton of activities for everyone, including a BBQ, bouncy castles, skills demonstrations, rock climbing wall, giveaways, and much more! Hope you can join us!
Please be advised the Local 1588 Information Meeting in Port Hawkesbury, NS and the Local 83 Monthly Meeting in Digby, NS on Thursday, July 20, 2017 have both been cancelled.
Both meetings will resume on Thursday, August 17, 2017. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
If so, the Atlantic Canada Regional Council is holding a contest where you and a guest can win travel, accommodation, and a meal stipend to attend the 2017 NAC and participate in the ACRC Olde Tyme Union Picnic on August 26, 2017.
Here’s how it works: For every union meeting you attend (all regions) and program you participate in (Journeyman Leadership, Site Organizer, assisting union campaigns, etc.) you will earn one ballot in the draw. The more you participate, the more ballots you earn!
In addition, any member who filled out the recent ACRC Membership Survey will automatically get one ballot in the contest.
To help make the day a success, we ask for a minimum volunteer commitment of four hours from each winner to assist with set up / tear down, event support, and other duties as assigned.
Up to forty (40) draws will take place across Atlantic Canada, proportional to membership numbers in each region.
Deadline for all ballots to be received is Thursday, June 15, 2017.
What are you waiting for? Get involved in your region and we hope to see you in Charlottetown in August!
For more information, please contact Director of Organizing Colin Keeping at 902-454-5100 or email@example.com
