Join the Golden Tree Farmworkers Vigil on March 2
February 20, 2019
To: All MoveUP Members
It was just under 12 years ago on March 7, 2007 when an overloaded van taking farmworkers to work rolled over.
The tragic incident injured numerous workers and claimed three lives – Sukhvinder Kaur Punia, Amarjit Kaur Bal, and Sarabjit Kaur Sidhu.
The BC Federation of Labour (BCFED) has worked with the families to bring attention to health and safety issues for farmworkers, including the installation of the Golden Tree Monument in memory of all farmworkers killed and injured on the job.
On Saturday, March 2, the BCFED invite you to join the families of the fallen at the 2019 vigil.
Date: Saturday, March 2
Time: 11:30 a.m. (Reception); 12:30 p.m. (Ceremony)
Location: Matsqui Centennial Auditorium (32315 South Fraser Way, Abbotsford)
