If you are a Union Counsellor, the Annual Union Counsellor Conference will be held in Edmonton on April 15 & 16, 2005 at the Crown Plaza Chateau Lacombe, 10111 Bellamy Hill. There will be sessions on workplace violence and bullying in the workplace.
April 16 is also Labour Appreciation Night where graduating Union Counsellors will receive their certificates for completing the Union Counselling Course. The Jim Shewchuk Award for outstanding labour and community service will also be presented (Television - Shaw Conference Centre). Last year's recipient, you will recall, was our own Bruce Dean.
If you are interested in attending the Union Counsellor's course you must be a trained Union Counsellor and make a request to Theresa McLaren, the Secretary Treasurer of UFCW Local 401. Anyone wishing to attend Labour Appreciation Night should also contact Theresa.
By the way, the Edmonton area Union Counsellor's Committee will be meeting on March 16 at the United Way office in Edmonton (10020 - 108 Street, Edmonton, Alberta). For further details contact Committe Chair Gary Pucci through the Edmonton UFCW Local 401 office.
