Union Elections

The September 13th Membership Meeting will be held 5:00pm at The Quality Inn, 17803 Stony Plain Rd, Edmonton.

Local Lodge 99 will be holding nominations for all Officers positions. Nominations will be accepted from both virtual and in person attendees. Local 99 will also be performing 2nd reading of bylaw changes.

Reminder: until bylaw changes are accepted by both the membership and the Grand Lodge, 20 members must attend “in person” to qualify for quorum.

It’s understandable that some members won’t be able to attend due to personal or work-related reasons however, to accommodate our membership outside the Edmonton region we will continue to maintain a Zoom option. Members looking to attend virtually can use the QR code for the 2023 reoccurring meetings below:

  1. Members should not be using company devices to attend meetings virtually.
  2. Members will be asked for their full name when accessing the meeting. Due to the open format of Zoom please be advised that people will be refused access if they do not share their information.
  3. To ensure everyone has an opportunity to speak and be heard please keep your microphones muted.
  4. Members can download Zoom onto their device for free here: https://zoom.us/

 March's Membership Meeting will be held on Wednesday March 8th 5:00pm at The Quality Inn, 17803 Stony Plain Rd, Edmonton.

In January Local 99 membership passed a motion to support the funding of a Business Representative, this was announced in January's newsletter. We are currently looking for nominees to fill the position, if members want to nominate an individual or are interested they can send Local 99 executive an email to LL99executive@iamaw99.ca

Nominations for this position will close on March 16th. Due to the fact that we rarely elect a locally funded rep, Local 99 Executive has reached out to the Canadian Territory for advise and clarification concerning eligibility, voting as well as the responsibilities that will come with the position.

It is the position of Local 99 Executive that this individual's priorities will be servicing the membership, assist our other Business Representatives and work towards becoming a fully funded Rep in the future.

When: Thursday November 10th @ 8:00am.
Where: West Harvest Quality Inn 17803 Stony Plain Rd, Edmonton Alberta

RE: Grievances F20-012 and F20-013 – Covid-19 Isolation Requirements

On April 22, 2020 Business Representative Jim Patterson published a letter to all affected members who may have suffered a monetary loss due to self isolation or mandated isolation for exposure to Covid 19. You were instructed with providing the following:

We Will Need

  • Full name and facility you work at
  • Dates of missed work and why
  • Who you talked to and when did you talk to them? This would include 811 calls, doctors, and management. If there were any other individuals or corporations, you feel will help support your case please include those dates
  • All relevant history to your claim
  • What steps were taken by yourself leading up to your isolation? For example, you took your sick days, applied for S.T.D but denied, applied for Federal assistance.

To date no information from any member has been supplied to the union office. These grievances were adjudicated by the District Grievance Committee on April 19th, with instructions by the committee to reach out to the membership one more time and give thirty (30) day timeline notice to get information in by May 27th.

If no new information is provided by May 27th, these matters will be withdrawn. Please send your information to kclark@iamDL14.org
