They are filling much needed positions at Horizon Construction site in Fort McMurray as a result of an agreement between the FTQ and CEP. There was a large turnout at the meeting with translation provided by one of the members.
Don MacNeil brought greetings from the National Executive and welcomed the new members into CEP. Jan Noster spoke of the great relationship CEP has with the FTQ and how he wants this relationship to continue to grow. First order of business was electing an interim executive. Several members put their names forward and elections were held. The new executive was sworn in by Brother MacNeil.
While in Fort McMurray, Jan Noster also met with Dave Drummond , President of CEP Local 707, and the executive to talk informally about what CMAW has planned for the Fort McMurray area.
