Effective today, and through an abundance of caution, all IBEW 424 Unit meetings for the remainder of the month of March are cancelled.

We will be re-evaluating weekly, and will make another announcement next week regarding unit meetings and other events in April. We will continue to post updates to our website and social media as needed.

We encourage all union brothers and sisters to take every precaution suggested by the Health Canada to protect yourselves and those around you from coronavirus/COVID 19. More info at:

 

Hello Brothers and Sisters,

 

IBEW Local Union 424 is currently taking action to minimize the spread of Coronavirus and we ask for your cooperation in keeping us all as safe as possible.

The LU 424 approach is to follow official advice from Health Canada with an emphasis on ensuring effective hygiene practices. Which are listed here:

https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/coronavirus-disease-covid-19.html

Therefore, we ask all visitors to any of the Local Union offices in Edmonton, Calgary, Fort McMurray or any IBEW organized activities or Jobsites to follow the guidance and personal hygiene standards below.

All visitors are strongly encouraged to wash their hands and/ or use hand sanitizer on arriving in the building, or after coughing and sneezing.

Health Canada recommends that the following precautions are taken to reduce the risk of catching and spreading respiratory infections like Coronavirus:

-Avoid direct hand contact with your eyes, nose and mouth.

-Maintain good hand hygiene – wash hands with soap and water or alcohol hand sanitizer before sanitizer before eating and drinking and, after coughing, sneezing, and going to the toilet.

-Avoid direct contact with people who have a respiratory illness and avoid using their personal items, such as their mobile phone.

-Cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing with disposable tissues and dispose of them in the nearest waste bin after use.

If you are feeling unwell, have a temperature, a cough or shortness of breath, we would politely ask you to stay away from our offices or facilitated activities until you are better. Our services are available by phone or the internet if needed.

Thank you for your patience and understanding regarding this matter.
