Good day Union Family
The Local 110 offices in both Edmonton and Calgary will be closed as of 4:30 PM Tuesday December 22, 2020 until 8:00 AM January 04, 2021, for the Christmas break. If there are any emergency calls the phones and website will be updated, with the information on bidding. The Business Agents and I can be reached in emergency by Email or on our cell phones.
This time of year can be difficult at the best of times, and 2020 has not been the best of times for anyone. Across Canada and in our own Membership people are struggling. If you are able reach out to some of these people, please do. It can be a gesture like shoveling their walks, but even making a quick phone call to say hello can help remind people they are not alone.
If you happen to be struggling, please take the time to reach out and ask for help. The CEFAP program is available at 1-800-663-1142, or call Health Link at 811.
When looking back on this year it is easy to remember the negatives, but there have been positives for Local 110. Our Membership purchased a new location for our Calgary office, opening new opportunities in Southern Alberta. Progress has been made towards a new Provincial Construction Collective Agreement. Our Local organized three new companies. There are also positive indications for work in the New Year.
In close I wish everyone a relaxing and enjoyable holiday season. Please stay safe and take care of yourself and your loved ones.
