CUPE Local 30 – Press Release

November 2, 2016

Sisters and Brothers:

It is with a heavy heart that I advise our membership and our CUPE and Labour Union family about the latest workplace fatality at the City of Edmonton.  On Tuesday, Nov 1, one of our 4400 members did not make it home from work.  The tunnel crews in Edmonton are a very tight-knit family and this has had a deep impact on all involved no matter how close or distant they were to the worker.  I extend our deepest condolences to his family, friends and co-workers.  An injury to one is an injury to all.  This is the third workplace fatality we have had in two short years.  We will continue fighting for safer workplaces with the hope that no family has to experience another such loss.

In solidarity,

Mike Scott,
CUPE Local 30
