Andy Breslin at his retirement lunch on July 31, 2018. Andy worked for an electronic contractor for several years until the union lobbied the board to bring the work in house. Andy began working as a CUPE member and served as the District’s electronic technician since 2006. His skill set saved the District hundreds of thousands of dollars. His sense of humour and placid attitude has served as an asset throughout the district with numerous friendships and admiration from his peers.
CUPE 409 wishes Andy all the best in his retirement!












Mary Luccock cutting her retirement cake after more than 26 years serving the District in various clerical classifications. Mary was referred to as our maintenance mother and has spent the last two decades supporting staff attached to the operations department. Her dedication to the department focused on ensuring that the District was maintained through thousands of work orders and that the worked was conducted in the most efficient manner that included balancing the budget. In addition, she also provided valuable support behind the scenes assisting with numerous capital projects.
Good Luck Mary from CUPE 409!
















Congratulations to Deb Crossan who worked for the District for 40 years and supported the UBC Councillor Centre located at NWSS for the past several years.
