United Steelworkers Local 1-424
1777 3rd Avenue, Suite 100
Prince George, British Columbia
Dear Brother Everitt,
On behalf of the Officers of the Canadian Labour Congress, I would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the members of Local 1‑424 in these most trying and sorrowful times.
The deaths and injuries at Lakeland Mills in Prince George, so closely on the heels of the Burns Lake tragedy in January, are heartbreaking for you, your members, and indeed, for the entire labour movement.
Please know, and convey, that we and the 3.3 million members of the Canadian Labour Congress are thinking of the workers and their families. Day of Mourning events in just a few days will take on an even more sombre note as we remember our fallen comrades.
In sympathy and solidarity,
