Now is a great time to consider your occupational health and safety training needs. The BCFED Health & Safety Centre has resumed public in-person classroom training and our fall course schedule has been updated with a priority on essential skills to deal with COVID-19.
OHS Committee Education in Kelowna
As we move into Phase 3 of BC’s Restart Plan, the BCFED Health & Safety Centre is resuming public in-person classroom training. Over the summer months we have added a number of public courses in regional centres to meet demand of postponed courses. In addition, our fall course schedule has been updated with a priority on essential skills to deal with COVID-19.
The North Okanagan Labour Council has an open vice-president's position.
We're now accepting nominations. Please submit your nomination to the President Ian Gordon (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Recording Secretary Cheryl Stone (email@example.com); an election will be held in September 2020.

Dear Affiliates and Labour Council Supporters,
In a continued commitment to do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 and overcoming this pandemic as quickly as possible, our regular BBQ Labour Day celebration will not occur this year. However, Labour Day remains a very important holiday for workers in Canada. To celebrate and highlight this important day, the North Okanagan Labour Council is asking for your help in making a Labour Day video, and we need your help!
Go to the Labour Links (also in the drop-down menu above) page to find links to union and other useful websites with information on COVID-19 and the workplace and on how to apply for assistance programs. We'll keep adding more as we find them.
To the 8000+ affliated unionized workers in the valley, please take a moment to feel proud about the work you do today. A part of that small amount of the dues you pay, combined with those from your fellow co-workers from all over (hospitals, post offices, government offices etc.), is constantly plugged into places where it can be leveraged to make the largest impact. You truly hold your community up! $1400 bucks to the Central Okanagan Food Bank from the North Okanagan Labour Council to reduce the stress of families over the holidays. Feel proud. This win is yours.
-- Vice President Kelly Hutchinson
