Ballantyne Memorial – Tuesday, June 18, 2019 @ 11:00 am New Brighton Park @ New Brighton Park
Jun 18 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

On June 18, 1936, violence on the Longshore picket line, instigated by police and goons on behalf of the Shipping Federation and their allies, became part of our history.  That battle was lost, but the war was won.  The actions of that day continue to be a constant reminder of who we are and the importance of maintaining this thread from our past to the present day.  We belong here, and here we will stay!

As part of the remembrance of the 75th Anniversary of Ballantyne in 2010, a permanent memorial was erected at New Brighton Park.  Since then, a small group of Longshore Pensioners have met annually at the memorial on June 18 at 11:00 am in an informal recognition of the events that helped form our ILWU Canada.

We will meet again at the memorial this year.  Drop by, bring a friend/family member and spend a bit of time socializing and remembering.

DATE:  MONDAY, JUNE 18, 2019

TIME:  11:00 AM

PLACE:  NEW BRIGHTON PARK, BALLANTYNE MEMORIAL SITE

NO Membership Meeting June 19, 2019 – STOP WORK MEETING ONLY (starting at 9 am)
Jun 19 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

There will be no regular Membership Meeting on Wednesday, June 19, 2019.

Instead, a “Stop Work” Meeting has been called for that day starting at 9:00 am at the Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex located at 633 Poirier Street in Coquitlam.  All Union Members are requested to attend the “Stop Work” Meeting to hear the details of the tentative collective agreement that has been endorsed by the Longshore Contract Caucus.  Voting on the tentative deal will then take place at the Local 500 office over the following two days, June 20 & 21, 2019 (there will also be a travelling ballot box on June 20).

Our next regularly scheduled Membership Meeting will be held in September 2019, however, we have dates tentatively scheduled in July and August 2019 should we need to convene a meeting.  Please check back to see if there is any change to the meeting schedule going forward into July.
