Area Council pleased to announce the new Treasurer, Phillip Chan. Welcome.
October 31st – November 2nd this event was part of our action to advise of our dissatisfaction – Omnibus Bills. Thru the REVP office, we rented out space across from the Convention Centre at Stampede Park for all attending and our platform for speakers. The day was great and said to be a huge success with attendance by the National President, Robyn Benson and Prairies REVP, Marianne Hladun. even with the bad weather. Attendance was 400-500 people. Thank you to everyone’s efforts. CLOSED
Took place in October. Not too many ridings were targeted. Encouraged members to vote labor friendly. Email sent to all locals in the area with info provided by the Calgary District Labor Council. CLOSED
Passing on this at this time as audit coming up at the end of the year.
