In The Loop, BTA's quarterly e-update, is here.

Winter 2020 features Cole's story of survival and rehabilitation thanks to the Building Trades of Alberta Courage Centre at the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital, which we first told you about in October.

"I knew my union gave money for the Building Trades of Alberta Courage Centre, but I didn't realize just how much it does for those in need of life-changing rehabilitation until it was my own son who needed it," Cole's dad Sean, member of United Association Local 488.

Plus our Edmonton Journal op-ed supporting Teck Frontier; BTA ED joins province's Skills for Jobs Task Force; Build Together, BTA connects and more.
