Subject: IAM Canada mourns loss of IAM Local 99 member

Dear Members and Activists,

On April 1, 2021, our membership suffered a tragic loss. Two IAM members were injured on the job at a Finning location in Edmonton, AB yesterday while on the job. Tragically, one of them passed away this morning in hospital.

I understand this message may be difficult to process. IAM Canada, and I personally, want to extend my condolences to the family, friends and the co-workers of our fallen brother. We understand that the company has allowed all workers to go home and has offered counselling to all.

Since the family has asked for privacy at this time, we will not share any further details to respect their wishes. We will share more details when appropriate.


Stan Pickthall
IAM Canadian General Vice-President
