Big thanks to Edmonton Mayor Amarjeet Sohi for spending time at UA Local 488’s grill during the Edmonton & District Labour Council’s annual Labour Day BBQ in Giovanni Caboto Park on September 5th. Always great to see leaders out on Labour Day, thanking folks like the members of the UA 488 for the work we do and the labour we provide both in Edmonton and beyond. We’re thankful for the strong working relationship we’re building with all levels of government to help guide our elected officials as they make decisions and policies that directly impact our membership. (Pictured with Mayor Sohi are Business Manager Rod McKay, Business Agent Neil Ferguson, and RMA Member Leon Husereau)
