Business Manager Comments     

Starting January 1st Husky and Nutrien have made a rule that any new employee arriving for work with a contractor must have a DISA Background check prior to arriving on site.  We are working on the logistics of how this will work and how we will get members checked.  If your DISA is expired (more than 2 years old) and you would like to renew it, please call the hall and we can arrange for that to be done.

Lastly, I would like to wish all Local 776 members and their families a Happy New year!  Hopefully, we can leave 2020 behind and 2021 can be full of work and blessings!
