Thanks to the many volunteers and unions who helped to make the Saskatoon & District Labour Council’s 18th annual Labour Day BBQ a resounding success! Only a few of those are shown in the pictures below. We estimate about 1500 (maybe more!) community members enjoyed the 2500 burgers, 1500 hotdogs, CFM 553 live musical entertainment, children’s activities, treats, swag, balloons and more! Happy Labour Day!

The Saskatoon& District Labour Council extends our sympathy to the family of Brother Chad Wiklun. Chad was injured and later died earlier this week and is a yet another young worker who has succumbed to workplace injury. Chad leaves behind a family with young children. We also extend our condolences to the members of USW Local 7552 and all other miners across this province who share in this grief. “Mourn for the dead and continue to fight for living”.

In solidarity.
