Working with other unions under the umbrella of the General Presidents’ Maintenance Committee for Canada (GPMC/NMC), we’re proud to report that we helped raised $300,000 for the Northern Lights Health Foundation.

Click here to read a thank-you letter from the Northern Lights Health Foundation which highlights the importance of this donation.

The Northern Lights Health Foundation serves to inspire philanthropy and secure funds to improve health and promote wellness in the Wood Buffalo region in Alberta. The foundation and the communities it serves were severely impacted by the Fort McMurray wildfires.

The GPMC/NMC is an alliance of International Building Trades Unions, including Teamsters Canada, that negotiates and administers labour agreements tailored for maintenance work at industrial plants in Canada.

The system provides a stable, long-term maintenance solution for industry and a reliable source of secure employment for unionized construction tradespeople.

Donations like these are proof that unions are committed to helping Alberta fully recover from last year’s wildfires.
