Donation to Food Bank

For a number of years Local 963 has made a $200 donation to the Vancouver Food Bank instead of issuing Christmas greeting cards. We have done so again this year. We think those who would have received a greeting card are pleased to know that this community donation has been made on their behalf. Happy Holidays to all!

BC Wildfires Assistance

As you are aware forest fires have impacted our province and communities where IUOE members work and live.  In Williams Lake and the surrounding area it is estimated that there are more than 600 members from Locals 115,882 & 959 who have been temporarily displaced.  The long term impact is unknown at this time.  Several Local 882 members have stayed in town to ensure the fire hall remained open and that pumping stations, generators and heavy equipment are available for use when needed.   They are committed to keeping critical city services running as long as possible.

Local 963’s Officers have approved a donation to assist fellow IUOE members similar to the donation made to assist in last years wildfires at Fort McMurray Alberta, at $10 per member.
