  • LODGE 764 MEMBERS EXPANDED EFAP HOURS AND AVAILABILITY

    Yesterday’s tragic and sudden passing of Brother Joe Toth has been very traumatic for a large portion of our membership who knew and worked with Joe over the course of his 36-year career and throughout his three decades of dedicated work as a Local Lodge 764 officer and representative.
    It is in difficult times like these that your Union must be there for you, to offer support and assistance to the extent that we can. TOSC Chairman Taminderjot Behl and LL764 Vice-President Chris Cheung have been in the ACM and GSE work locations yesterday and again today talking with our members.
    They are being supported in this effort by Sister Liz McWilliams, Western Regional Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP) Coordinator. To better accommodate and support our members in dealing with the loss of Brother Toth, Sister McWilliams has graciously expanded and altered her normal office hours for the next three (3) weeks. Her new office hours for the next three weeks will now be:  Read Bulletin here…

  • ALL LOCAL LODGE 764 MEMBERS JUNE GENERAL MEETING POSTPONEMENT

    It is with profound regret and the greatest sadness that I must inform all of you of the sudden and tragic passing this morning of Brother Joe Toth. This is an unspeakable loss for his wife, Linda and his family.

    Joe was an absolute diehard Unionist and ardent activist within LL764 for his entire career. He has contributed more than three decades of service representing our membership in multiple roles within the Executive Board and the TOSC. Brother Toth was currently serving as a member of the Technical Operations H&S Committee and one of the LL764 Auditors.

    As a sign of respect for Brother Toth and because of the devastating grief that his sudden passing has brought upon a significant portion of our membership, Local Lodge 764 has sought, and received approval, from the Canadian Grand Lodge office to postpone tonight’s scheduled General Membership meeting.

    Therefore, this bulletin is being issued to advise all LL764 members of the following change of date for the June Local Lodge 764 General Membership meeting:
    Tonight’s General Membership Meeting has been cancelled
    And has been rescheduled by one (1) week it will now be held on: Wednesday, June 19, 2024 at 17:00
