Volunteers for Occupational Intake Clinic

Request for volunteers:

On April 23, 2005 from 9 am till 6 pm the Electrical Workers Local 353
are holding an Occupational Intake Clinic with the help of the Building
Trades and assistance from other key organizations such as OHCOW, OFL
and WHSC only to name a few. Some volunteers have already come forward,
although we still require several more. The clinic is only weeks away
and we are trying to put together the final preparations, so please
contact us and sign up too volunteer as soon as possible.

At our clinic last June the volunteers turnout was truly amazing and we
are hoping to duplicate similar numbers if not exceed them. Events like
this can only be successful with the dedicated efforts from the people
who give there precious time to volunteer. Last year we took great
strides in creating awareness to Building Trade affiliates; through that
awareness we are pleased to be holding the first of several Occupational
Disease Intake Clinics for participating affiliates. Although this time
we have decided instead of having one large clinic we plan to hold the
following clinics for one union at a time.

The IBEW will have some hotel rooms available for those coming in from
out of town, if you require a room please contact me and I will make the
arrangements for you. There will be a Training session on April 22, 2005
at 7:00 pm at the IBEW hall located at 1377 Lawrence Ave East which is
the same location as the clinic. Pizza and refreshments will be served
the night of the training and lunch will be served the day of the

As stated earlier this clinic will be a little different then the last
one as it will be strictly for current members as well as retiree's of
Electrical Workers local 353. Thank you in advance for offering your
time and service, your participation is greatly appreciated. Please fill
