Proud to be partners with The Educational Partnership Foundation Trades Careers Program, which provides hands-on learning to students using red seal journeyperson instructors in the construction trades - many from BTA.

This training exposes youth to a rewarding career in the skilled trades and will help fill the looming trades labour gap as baby boomers reach retirement age.

We were happy to donate $50,000 to the foundation in Calgary last week.

30 years ago, 14 women were massacred at Ecole Polytechnique in MTL leading to today being declared NTL Day of Remembrance + Action on Violence against Women. Unions have a proud history of fighting for women’s equality + the rights of all wrkrs. Today, we remember the fallen 14.

The health of members is important to us. We're helping promote a confidential research study through @UAIberta that looks at ways to possibly improve the mental health & well-being of mobile camp workers in the oil sands. See poster below for details & ways to sign up #abhealth

Wowzers! Oxford House would like to thank @PMLTC14 for organizing the Sober Walk, and also @theECF , @BuildingTradeAB and Marian Centre for opening up their calendars to meet face-to-face with us. Also, TY to @JasonLuan and Marshall for the tour of the Ledge.

Met w #abgov to discuss use of dues to poli parties & causes. It’s important to talk w all stakeholders, including GOA, when it comes to potential changes that may affect affiliates & members. We’ll continue to ensure the unionized skilled trades are heard by decision makers.
