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.

September 30th – National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
The UA Canadian office and Local 488 support the Indigenous Communities across Canada and recognizes the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on September 30th.
Please, use this day for reflection, education, or participation in a community event to acknowledge the history of residential schools, honor the survivors, their families, and their communities. Take this day to learn something new about Indigenous culture, and how the residential school system has impacted communities, heritage, and way of life.
