The First Monthly Membership Meeting of the year was a success!

The first Thursday of every month Local Lodge 1722 holds its membership meeting, and all members are welcome to attend.  You can attend both Virtually (via Zoom) or In Person (at the District 14 Office in Edmonton).  Last night January 5, 2023 was the first membership meeting of the new year and we had attendance both in person and online.  Its always great to see new faces at the membership meetings, we encourage all to attend! Our Local Lodge and all IAMAW Local Lodges are run by the membership, the monthly meetings are where we conduct Local Lodge 1722 business, and receive updates on the units covered under our Local. If you have something to share or would like updates we encourage you to attend your monthly meetings!

Last night in attendance in person we had: Local Lodge President, Trent Mills, Local Lodge Vice President, Ashley Speer, Local Lodge Secretary Treasurer, Teddie Ncube, Shop Steward, Sam Nuako, Member, Arlene Crozier. Online we had: Business Representative, Kyle Frazen, Shop Steward, Elizabeth Garcia, and Shop Steward, Sofia Olvina.

It was a great turn out! If you wish to receive invites /  reminders to our monthly meetings, please forward your email address, along with your full name and place of work, to VP, Ashley Speer at

Look forward to seeing you next month!

New Local Communicator – Ashley Speer

Greeting Members of Local Lodge 1722, Happy New Year to you all!

I wanted to introduce myself, I am Local Lodge 1722’s newest Communicator, Ashley Speer, I also sit on your Executive as Vice President. I had the pleasure today, January 4, 2023 to join Frank Saptel, IAMAW Canada’s Communicator, for an online basic web training session. Today I have learned the basics of WordPress, which is the back end of our website. I now have some knowledge that will help us keep the website up to date, to better communicate with you the membership. We have hopes that a newly functioning website will give us the ability to keep members up to date on news in the world of your Union, your Local, and the Labour movement at large.

Please feel free to reach out with any ideas of what you would like to see on the website going forward.

If you wish to stay connected, please update your contact information by sending me an email at

Let this New Year be one to remember!
