A message from the IBEW First District International Vice President Tom Reid:
Thanksgiving Day in Canada has been a holiday on the second Monday of October since 1957. It is a chance for people to give thanks for a good harvest and other fortunes in the past year.
Take pleasure in your Thanksgiving Day and as this weekend comes with fun family time and good food, please remember to give thanks to the builders of our Labour Movement; it’s because of them that today we reap the benefits of their hard work through our collective bargaining agreements and the legislation they fought so hard to put in place.
Please have an enjoyable and safe Thanksgiving long weekend. It is important to take the time to be with your family and friends and to put aside the stresses of your every day work life.
This holiday give thanks for the blessings in one’s life and a Happy Thanksgiving to you all !!!!
Tom Reid, IVP
