RE: UTE Toronto Regional Health and Safety Conference Postponed

October 17 – 19, 2003

With the heightened awareness of SARS and increased concerns expressed by the participants scheduled to attend the conference, we have moved the Regional Health and Safety conference from May 9-11 to October 17-19. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause but the health and safety of our members and their family is our primary concern.

If your local has already purchased airline tickets, please contact your travel agent or airline to change the ticket(s) for the October dates. Air Canada has a "Rebooking Policy due to SARS", please see attached.** Advise the National Office of any costs incurred for both your delegates and observers.

The information currently on file for participants will remain for the October conference. We will re-confirm participants in September.

In Solidarity,

Chris Aylward
Chairperson
UTE Health and Safety Committee
