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.
