New business: it is hard to do any business with 605 new covid cases.

Vaccination mandate will keep us very busy, TB did not accept any of the recommendations from Unions, Locals need to push for civility from members.  Casino Regina had an unreasonable time frame for members to become vaccinated.

Casino Regina turned away 180 patrons at the door due to new mandate, this is affecting hours of work for members as it is not busy at the casino.

Indigenous Services has distributed a link to attestation form however there are privacy concerns with how managers are asking for this information.

RCMP cadets are not wearing masks putting our members at risk.

Covid 19 has affected members in multiple ways whether it be members working though the pandemic or members laid off for long periods of time.  No one wins.

Old Business: none
