We write to advise you that as of March 17, the Alberta government has put a ban on gatherings of 50 people or more. This means our Prairie Regional Council which was scheduled April 23 – 27 will be cancelled.
As we work to see if this event can be re-scheduled in the coming months, please cancel any travel and accommodation arrangements you have made. If you have a booking at the Hyatt Regency Calgary, your reservation will be cancelled if you booked in the PRC block.
Please continue to send in your Unity Team Nomination forms up until March 31, 2020.
Up to date information regarding COVID-19 can be found on www.unifor.org/covid19
We will update you with more information regarding PRC as soon as possible.
Thank you for your patience during this time, please take good care and stay safe.
