2023 USW Lobby Days – Regina
USW District 3 will be conducting “Lobby Days” at the Saskatchewan Legislature in Regina in May. Local unions are asked to recruit members to attend the lobby. We would like to have a Steelworker delegation of approximately 20 members. Local unions are responsible for all costs of sending members to the Saskatchewan Lobby Days.
Our lobby days will consist of classroom training to prepare members to meet with Ministers and MLAs to discuss important issues that impact the livelihoods of our members and workers in the province. Members will have the opportunity to visit the Saskatchewan Legislative Building and there will be a reception with MLAs and other government officials.
The dates are Tues. May 2 and Wed., May 3. Members will travel to Regina on Mon., May 1. The lobby days will conclude by 4:30 p.m. on May 3. The room block will be extended to those required to stay overnight on May 3, checking out on May 4.
If members are travelling from out of town, we have secured a discounted room block at the DoubleTree by Hilton™ Hotel and Conference Centre Regina, 1975 Broad St, Regina for $210/night plus applicable taxes. Please book your room BEFORE APRIL 1, 2023 directly with the hotel by using the link below or by calling (306) 525-6767 Ext. #2 and quote the code 90D to receive the negotiated group rate.

If you have members interested in attending or any questions regarding the lobby, please contact Brett Barden at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jessie Uppal at email@example.com.
I hope your local union will participate in our lobby days.
