Photos from Building Trades of Alberta’s post
On May 30, the Building Trades of Alberta hosted our Industry Reception at the Royal Glenora Club. In attendance were many representatives from our affiliate Locals, leaders from our Single-Breasted partners, over 20 MLAs and Ministers and, of course, the Premier of Alberta, Rachel Notley.
At this annual event, we had the opportunity to speak directly to our elected officials and to really drive home the importance of eliminating double-breasting and the need for an ethical procurement policy which incorporates aspects of Community Benefits Agreements to the benefit of all Albertans by ensuring the best-qualified people are the ones performing the work, as well as making sure that under-represented groups have the chance to contribute and demonstrate their ability to construct and to lead.
Many thanks to all attendees and we look forward to seeing you again next year.
