Important Notice: Renewing Your Provincial Driver’s Licence

CUPEGeneral updates

As of April 1, 2016 the Province of Alberta will no longer be mailing out reminders to your home
to renew your provincial driver’s licence.

Employees operating City fleet vehicles or equipment are required to have a valid provincial
driver’s licence, as well as a City Operator’s permit.

It is the responsibility of the City of Calgary employees to ensure that you renew your
provincial driver’s licence prior to your birthday expiration date.

Greetings Sisters & Brothers,

I would like to commend everyone on a very successful winter season and welcome back to all the   seasonal employees in all departments. I wish all of you a healthy and happy summer.

CUPE 37 had its annual Retirement Banquet on April 29th. Again, it was another sellout and everyone enjoyed themselves very much. Thank you to all the volunteers that gave up their valuable time to help with this event. I would also like to give a special thanks to George Carnegie, as he picked up the   centre pieces and hosted the event. He, along with Elizabeth Tweedale and Alonni Pedneault, set up the facility. Kudos to all of you.

We are still having driver’s license issues. This came about last year when the province decided to no longer send out renewal reminders. I cannot stress enough that we all need to check our Provincial License. It is normal for the City Permit to be coordinated with our Provincial License. This helps, as they both expire at the same time. So, just a friendly reminder to check your license and make
sure it is up to date and not going to expire. We have more information on our website, so please check it out.

And please remember, if you have any concerns or questions, do not hesitate to call the Union Office. We will do what we can to rectify your issue.

In solidarity,

Cyril Wilson - signature

Your President, Cyril Wilson
