Building the Future…Special Commemorative Edition
The most recent accomplishment is the opening of our new head office building complex in Surrey, in December 2013. This building houses all of our departments, including the Union head office, Medical Plan, Pension Plan, Training Plan, Membership Services Office, Organizing Department and Retiree Council. It is truly one stop shopping for the membership. Along with our 8 branch offices, it provides the Union with full provincial coverage. We also want to thank Ken Backman of Kingston Construction, who was the Union general contractor on our building project and their Union sub-contractors, for their job very well done. Our building is 100% Union built.
Our new building is an important symbol of our Union and the professional work and dedication of the membership; and is also a signal to our supportive signatory contractors and employers, owners, government and others, that our Union as an institution, is strong and growing. LiUNA Local 1611, the Construction & Specialized Workers feel the power and show the pride.
