Game Day Sponsor of Regina Red Sox
On Sunday July 29th, 2018, the Regina Red Sox of the Western Major Baseball League will take on the Weyburn Beavers at Currie Field. It is with great excitement that we announce that Unifor 594 will be the game day sponsor.
The first of two contests that Unifor 594 held was a giveaway of 40 tickets to the game. Members were entered into a draw after the completion of a survey. Winners will take home up to 4 tickets until all 40 are claimed. The second contest was for dependants of members only. Members were asked to e-mail a picture of their dependants in their baseball gear or with their team. The winner will receive two tickets to the game, hot dog and drinks, a Unifor594 hat and the opportunity to throw the ceremonial first pitch at the game.
We hope you will come out and join us in supporting our Regina Red Sox on July 29th. If you are in need of tickets, they can be purchased at: https://www.reginaredsox.com/
See you at the ball game!
Earlier this month activists from across the Prairies met in Saskatoon for our 5th annual Prairies Council. Delegates received updates from committees, held elections, and discussed a wide range of pressing issues including truth and reconciliation, mental health, and the role of youth in our movement.
A video synopsis of the meeting is now online, and I encourage you to share it widely with your members: https://youtu.be/rhHm2VQL9QI
I hope you were as energized coming out of Saskatoon as we were. Thank-you for the work you do to make our union great. We look forward to working with you in the next year.
