Business Manager Comments
The Building Trades met with Husky last week and they let us know that there are over 4200 total people on site at Husky right now (which is an all time high). I would like to remind everyone to continue to work safely (especially with all the congestion) and that you are your brother’s keeper. With the Holiday season right around the corner we want to see everyone going home to their family the same way that they reported to work – in one piece.
