Labour Day weekend coming up. Time to reflect and time to celebrate !

This coming Monday September 4th is labour day. Have you every wondered about why we celebrate labour day ? Do you realize it is from hard work by the working class in the forever struggle for fair wages, benefits and being treated with respect and dignity ? Please check out this web site for some history, from a Canadian perspective.

Here is PG the various unions have gotten together to celebrate labour day ! Please feel free to had to City Hall on Monday at 11 am (food starting at noon ) for various activities, music, free food and general fun !.

CUPE locals from PG will have a tent there handing out free fruit. Feel free to drop in and say hi. Course if you feel like helping out for a bit, one of the other volunteers will gladly take a break.

In Solidarity

August Special General Membership Meeting

Good day all,

The Executive have called a special membership meeting to address a few things that need to be addressed in a timely manner. Our current Bylaws state that a special general membership meeting can be called with 24 hours notice but we would like to give as much notice as possible so we have set a date of Tuesday, August 15th,. The meeting will take place in the Senate Chambers. Barring any technical issues, will be available via Elluminate as well. Link to be sent out before the meeting.
