New Date for the Annual Family Picnic

Due to the Reopening Strategy being executed by the Alberta Government and with restrictions still in place for outdoor gatherings, the Local 488 Picnic has been moved to August 7th, 2021. This of course is pending the Stage 3 Reopening which is expected in late June or early July. There is potential that the Annual Picnic might be cancelled if Alberta imposes any other restrictions or cannot meet the requirements for the Stage 3 Reopening.

UPDATE ON USA VISA OPPORTUNITY

We have just received confirmation from the employer that the project will only be able to bring back previous visa holders, meaning all new applicants will not be receiving a visa to go to the United States to work. This message is directly from the employer: “The final regulation only allows us to bring back previous visa holders, so we will not be able to use the new applicants. That is completely different from how they allowed us to operate in the past, but it is a new regulation and the Departments of Labor and Homeland Security have made the requirements into an almost unsurmountable obstacle.”  We would like to thank all interested applicants who were excited to represent UA Canada on this endeavor and we are certain this is not the last we will see of work visas to support our Brothers and Sisters down south.
