CUPE mourns loss of City of Edmonton worker

Members of CUPE Local 30, representing City of Edmonton workers, are deeply moved by the loss of a colleague and friend who died April 28 from injuries sustained in a workplace accident last week.

“We are shaken and saddened,” Local 30 President Mike Scott said. “Our thoughts are with his family today.”

Scott said this is the second workplace death in the past 12 months. Earlier this year, city worker Harl Hawley passed away suddenly while working at the Grand Trunk Recreational Centre.

“An injury to one is an injury to all,” Scott said. “We must never take safety for granted, and this tragedy reminds us all of the importance of choosing safety over convenience.”

“We will work with the City of Edmonton to ensure other workers are protected,” Scott said.

“Today is a sad day for workers across the city and across our province,” Scott said.
