*** Help Stop Michigan from closing Enbridge Line 5 Pipeline ***
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is trying to close the Enbridge Line 5 Pipeline. This action will cost thousands of jobs on both sides of the border and cripple the economy in the Sarnia, Ontario area. The closure directly affects the lives of many UA members who will lose their means of income.
We want the Federal and Provincial governments to take an active role, on behalf of the residents of Ontario and more broadly Canada, and aggressively fight on behalf of all Canadians to keep this pipeline operating.
Please sign the petition and help us raise awareness and let our governments know this has to be prevented!
As you know, we are in the fourth wave of this horrific and dreadful pandemic. Not only is the Delta variant contributing to an increase in Covid-19 cases, but Alberta’s ICU beds are also quickly filling up fast and threatening the lives of those who may need other urgent medical attention. Ensuring the safety of our staff, our members, and their families, Local 488 is reducing access to the building.
Effective Monday, September 20th at 5:00pm, the following will be implemented:
There is to be no in-person meetings (only exception is if it is vital to meet in person). All business is to be conducted via email, phone calls or Virtual.
The dispatch hall and RMA coffee counter will be closed.
All committee and trustee meetings will be held virtually.
The reason for this decision is listed below.
As of September 16 2021 Alberta as
5,754,307 doses administered
80.1% of Albertans 12 + with at least 1 dose
71.8% of Albertans 12 + filly vaccinated
1,496 adverse events following immunization or 0.026%
In closing, those members who have received their vaccination, I thank you. For those who have not yet, or are thinking twice about getting vaccinated, I do understand there may be some hesitancy, but I strongly encourage we all do our part to protect our brothers and sisters, along with our loves ones.
Due to recent covid restrictions, we have cancelled the October Mayfield Dinner event as well as the RMA Christmas Party in November. The monthly luncheon meetings and the coffee counter service are also cancelled until further notice. We apologize and hope all members understand. Thank you
