Statement: UFCW 1518 Office Temporarily Closed due to New Westminster Pier Park Fire

UFCW 1518 is saddened by the news that a fire has likely destroyed much of New Westminster’s historic pier park. Our office, which is located next to the park, is undamaged but will be closed until the smoke clears. Our staff will be working remotely until then, so it may take us a bit more time than usual to get back to you. We appreciate your understanding!
Thank you to the New Westminster Fire Department and to the regional fire crews who joined the fight to get the blaze under control. We are happy that no one was hurt, no businesses have been damaged, and much of the pier has been saved.
