National Day of Mourning

Original Letter From

Loreen Matousek, President, CUPE 1908

Hello members.

Before COVID, CUPE1908 and the City of Salmon Arm took the time to remember those that have fallen on the Day of Mourning. Due to COVID we did not have the service in 2020 nor in 2021.
This year was supposed to be different; the City and our Union had planned on a service at Marine Park.
But, due to my busy schedule, I was not able to provide the support to the City to accomplish having the service happen. I feel that I have let you all down and for that I am sorry.

The Day of Mourning is very important to our union members, to our executive and to me.
I look forward to next year when we can be together to provide support to one another and grieve for those who have died on the job or who were hurt.
