Hello Sisters & Brothers,

I hope this finds you all well and I would like to take this opportunity to let all our members know that we ratified a Memorandum of Agreement on April 18, 2019. We agreed to a three year deal: 2018 = 0%, 2019 = 0%, and 2020 = 1.50%. We did achieve some gains in other areas, but in the long run it was a good contract for the members and the employer.

I would also like to remind everyone that our Stampede Breakfast is on July 6, 2019 at our Union Hall, which is located at 5112 – 3rd Street SE. I hope to see everyone there.

We had our Retirement Banquet on April 27, 2019. It was another great event and was also a packed house. Next year’s event is on April 25, 2020. Please plan to attend this fantastic event.

I would like to remind everyone to give Pam Tasker of Allstate Insurance a call for a quote on insurance. Pam’s # is 403-476-0560, extension #5014. Also, if you have not received your BOOM discount card in the mail, please contact the CUPE 37 Office at 403-269-5333.

Your President,

Cyril Wilson

Good of the Union:

At every membership meeting we set aside some time to talk about our members and any significant events that have happened to them. We offer congratulations on retirements, promotions, and share condolences on losses of loved ones, or illnesses and injuries.

We’d like to take a moment to share with everyone the unfortunate accident that happened to Clint Poluck while at home last year. Clint broke his neck and as a result is paralyzed. His family and peers at work have put together a GoFundMe page for him to help renovate his house in order to accommodate his paralysis.

Clint worked for Waste & Recycling services for close to 30 years. He was a Collection Operator and then the last few years of his career he was a Trainer. He retired in 2017 and last year was his first Retirement Banquet.

Clint, from all of your Brothers and Sisters at Local 37, we send you our best wishes in your recovery.
