President’s Message

Season’s Greetings Sisters & Brothers,

It’s that time of year again for our Holiday Newsletter.

There are a lot of rumors floating around the worksites these days and I would like to     address some of them. City council has approached the City unions and asked for the     unions to forfeit the increase for this year. The Calgary Civic Coalition has met and we all feel that the City cannot give the unions what we are requesting in order to give up the     increase. The city manager has communicated to the unions that giving back the 1.5% does not, and I repeat, does not guarantee no job loss. He actually said there will still be job loss, so why would we give up the increase? He stated that giving up the increase does not stop the contracting out of garbage and golf courses.

Please remember winter is upon us, so please slow down and watch for children.

I would like to take this time to wish everyone and their families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Your President,

Cyril Wilson
