March 17, 2019 - Brother Doug McKay, Local 258 IBEW Business Manager/Financial Secretary, has been advised we have a member in need, and in an effort to help support our Sister and fellow IBEW Local 258 member, Brenda Bates, your union is sharing information that a GoFundMe fundraising campaign has been started by Brenda’s niece. Titled “The 9 Lives of Brenda Bates”, funds donated to this campaign will help Brenda as she recovers from surgery and undergoes treatment for a Glioblastoma brain tumour. Brenda works at Valley Traffic in the lower mainland/Fraser Valley and has been off work since May of last year when she suffered from cardiac arrest while on the job.
