Given the limited human resources we have, the HRC did partnered with the Area Council committee, the Women’s committee along with other union and committees to set up a booth at the Calgary Annual Global-Fest. The booth showcased PSAC, handed out different brochures regarding for example Employment Standards in Alberta. Give the public opportunity a chance to spin “The Wheel of Information” and make the people answer questions to win a price. The booth was well attended on the 23rd of August when I was at the booth but unfortunately I didn’t take my camera — so no pictures from me. 

A similar activity also took place today (Labour Day) at the Olympic Plaza in downtown Calgary — in front of the City Hall. Again the HRC contributed towards the burger and hot dogs (condiments) served to the public by the Calgary District Labour Council. We once again partnered with the Area Council committee and the regional office to set up a booth where the pubic get a chance to spin the “Wheel of Information”, answer a question and win a price. We also had abundant of delicious cookies that were given to the public. See the attached pictures from the Labour Day event.
