Good day Union Family
Friday April 28, 2023 is the National Day of Mourning. This day is observed in over 80 Countries around the World as a time to remember workers killed, injured, or suffering due to a workplace hazard or occupational exposure. This year in Alberta there has been 161 occupation related deaths, a number of these were due to Asbestos and other exposures from decades prior.
This year there are several Day of Mourning services being held around the Province, I encourage all who are available to attend,
- Agent Casemore will be attending in Fort McMurray Howard Pew Park (Waterways) starting at 10:45AM,
- Agent Stock will be attending in Calgary at the City hall starting at 10:45
- I will be attending in Edmonton Grant Notley Park, 116 street and 100 Ave starting at 11:00 AM,
Additionally, most sites will be marking the day in some way, but no matter where you are please, at 11:00 am Friday April 28, 2023 take a moment of silence for reflection on those who have past, the families left behind, and your personal commitment to safety.
Stay vigilant, stay safe, and look out for each other.
