The Callgary Herald 'Swerve' Magazine
(June 12/15) includes a fascinating article on a new public art work being installed in Vancouver and fabricated by Local 8 members working at Reggin Industries Inc. You can find the article HERE
 

Local 8 is pleased and proud to congratulate two of our members on
their outstanding achievements

Daniel Lee (Calgary, Crosstown) was named the Top Alberta Sheet Metal Apprentice. Dan is pictured here with Doug Worobetz, BM


Neil Lucki - right (Calgary, L.A. Brayer) was the gold medal winner for sheet metal in the 2016 Provincial Skills Competition
 

Due to the conditions in Fort McMurray, the membership meeting scheduled for June 7
has been cancelled. We will try to visit the area as soon as the situation improves.

Over the past week, both Suncor and Syncrude have started to re-mobilize the people who were working at their plants prior to the evacuation. This is being done in a staged process, with essentional personnel being the first to be re-mobilized.

With recent events and the loss of Blacksands Lodge, camp space is at a premium
so the on-boarding process for Syncrude has changed. The contractor you were working for will contact you when it is time to re-mobilize; and provide you with
the necessary information to do so.

Transportation to and from the sites has been changed due to restricted highway access in the Fort McMurray area. Again, the contractor will provide you
with these details. We ask that you be patient with the process
and we will assist in any way we can.
