Victoria Day Weekend

Brothers and Sisters,

On behalf of the Atlantic Canada Regional Council Executive and Delegates, I want to wish you and your families a Happy Victoria Day weekend.  

Thankfully, the weather forecast for Atlantic Canada is predicting warmer temperatures for us all this weekend.  I hope you get the opportunity to spend time outdoors with family and friends. For those of you travelling on the highway for work or camping, be extra careful with the increased traffic.

Have an enjoyable and safe long weekend!

Membership Jackpot Draw!!!

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

It has been a very busy time for all Locals in the Council as the demand for workers has increased significantly across Atlantic Canada. We want our union membership to be informed about all of the work opportunities, training and upcoming events. Attendance at our union meetings is a great way to do this and keep updated on union benefits and support.

As an incentive to increase meeting attendance, our newly appointed Member Engagement Committee has developed a Membership Jackpot Draw! The jackpot will have potential to increase to $10,000 as participation in meetings increases. You can learn more about the rules and prize payout below.

I look forward to having the opportunity to meet with you in person at a membership meeting in the near future. Thank you for your continued support.

In Solidarity,

Debra Romero
Executive Secretary – Treasurer
