Statement on Passing of Edmonton ATU Local 569's Union Brother Gerald Berg

On behalf of myself and ATU Canada, I want to express our deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Edmonton ATU Local 569’s Union Brother Gerald Berg who tragically passed away Tuesday due to COVID-19. Gerald served as a transit worker for Edmonton Transit Services for over 20 years during the 1970s to 1990s and was an avid ATU member and supporter until his final days.

It is the dedication of workers like Gerald Berg that make our union as strong as it is. Our thoughts and prayers are also with our brothers and sisters of ATU Local 569 as they deal with this difficult loss.

John Di Nino

President, ATU Canada
