The Day of Mourning is an annual day of remembrance for workers who have been killed and injured on the job; the aim of this day is to publicly renew the commitment to fight for the safety of the living as well as mourn for those workers who have died.
The National Day of Mourning, held annually on April 28, was officially recognized by the federal government in 1991, eight years after the day of remembrance was launched by the Canadian Labour Congress. The Day of Mourning has since spread to about 80 countries around the world and has been adopted by the AFL-CIO and the International Confederation of Free Trade. The IBEW was originally formed by workers who wanted to improve safety in their workplace. Our union was formed on the need for safety at a time when 1 in 2 electrical workers were being killed on the job every day; even our own founding President Henry Miller died from a workplace incident. Today, safety continues to be a main focus of our Local Unions mandate; safety is paramount to the IBEW!
On April 28, we remember those who lost their lives, as well as the thousands of others injured; because for them, life will never be the same. So, on Friday, April 28th, mark the ’Day’ by flying flags at half-mast; wear ribbons or black armbands, or whatever your traditional vigils/ceremonies are, and observe a moment of silence at 11am, as we remember those killed or injured at work and recommit to the challenge of preventing, reducing and eliminating workplace deaths and injuries.
We must mourn the dead, but we must also fight for the living!!

The Electrical Contractors Association of Alberta (ECAA)
I am happy to share some exciting news with you. The recent I.B.E.W. Local Union 424 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) vote has been a huge success, and I am thrilled to report that we achieved an incredible 58% voter turnout, which has exceeded any other voter turnout in recent history, with that said, it was also an overwhelming 77% in favour of the agreement.
This result is a testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone involved in the negotiation process, including our Bargaining Team and Union Representatives. It also demonstrates the strong commitment and solidarity of our Membership.
With this new Agreement, we have secured important improvements in our working conditions, wages, and benefits. We have also addressed several key issues that were of concern to our Membership.
I would like to extend my heartfelt congratulations to everyone who participated in the voting process. Your voice has been heard, and your vote has made a significant difference in shaping our collective future.
As we move forward, I encourage all Members to stay engaged and active in our Union. Together, we can continue to build a stronger and more prosperous workplace for all.
Thank you again for your commitment to the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 424 and our collective success.
Yours in solidarity,

RE: Tax deduction for skilled trades workers: Take 2 minutes to send a letter to your MP
Skilled trades workers have always had to travel for work, that’s why we’re called a journeyperson. Projects arise, are built, and are completed at different times in different regions across the country and in many of these cases, workers need to travel, sometimes great lengths, in order to go to work.
Right now, the cost to travel for work – mileage, accommodations, food – aren’t tax deductible for skilled trades workers in the construction industry and aren’t always covered by an employer. When costs aren’t covered by an employer, skilled trades workers in the construction industry should receive the same treatment under the Tax Act as the white-collar workers who can claim those same out-of-pocket expenses.
We need your help today; please take 2 minutes to send a letter to your Member of Parliament asking that they support a Skilled Trades Workforce Mobility Tax Deduction.
The IBEW and Canada’s Building Trades Unions need your support to ensure the federal government and opposition parties live up to their campaign promises to introduce and pass legislation that ensures tax fairness for workers in the Building Trades.
Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
