Day of Mourning

On April 28 was the Day of Mourning in the province of Saskatchewan,  It was held at the coal car on the corner of Souris Ave and 4TH street.  This year there were 48 names were read out for workers who died or were killed on the job which is up from last year.  This included our member Wade Bye who pasted away in early 2018 with Lung Cancer from Fly Ash Exposure. The union had a extra wreath made up for Wade which was laid at the coal car.  The weather was not very cooperative for the event this year.  Jody had contacted Wade’s wife to let her know we were thinking of her on that day and she was thankful and that on April 28 was Wade’s birthday as well. Included is the list of names that were read out that afternoon.
