    March 22, 2019 - Local 1944 is very proud to announce that three of the NDP candidates for the upcoming 2019 Provincial General Election in Alberta are USW Local 1944 members.

    “Not only is Rachel Notley a Steelworker, but Shaye Anderson, Steve Durrell and Kyle Johnston are all brothers from Local 1944 running for spots as ABNDP candidates,” said Joe Benn, Local Union Representative for Alberta who is actively involved in political action. “We wish them success as we strive for four more years for Rachel.”

    Shaye Anderson

    Shaye Anderson, from Unit 208, is looking for re-election in the next Alberta election for Leduc-Beaumont.

    After being appointed Minister of Municipal Affairs in 2017, Shaye put his people skills to work, travelling across the province to visit municipalities and hear what matters most to Albertans. He used those meetings to inform his work in the legislature, where he worked to modernize the rules that govern municipalities, make local elections more fair and transparent and update Alberta’s emergency management framework.

    A dedicated advocate for the fair treatment of workers, Shaye served as Shop Steward, CAT member, Unit Councillor, and Unit Vice-President for Local 1944.

    Steve Durrell

    Steve Durrell, from Unit 203, was acclaimed as the uncontested NDP candidate for the Airdrie-Cochrane riding in January 31. Steve’s connection to his community and years of political organizing experience has given him a strong knowledge of what is at stake in the next election. He is proud to be a part of Rachel Notley’s team. He considers that pipelines, the highways 1A/22 interchange and getting schools built are priorities: “As a father with young children entering the school system, I want to be part of the team that will continue to push the 240 schools that have been invested in since the 2015 NDP election.”

    Passionate about employees’ rights and labour law, and proud member of USW Local 1944, Steve served as a Unit Counsellor and a Health & Safety Committee officer for our Local. He currently serves as the Regional Executive Officer for Alberta and a member of the Political Action Committee. He is dedicated to his union’s principles of accountability and protecting and improving conditions for employees, and he knows these principles will inspire his work in the legislature.

    Kyle Johnston

    Kyle Johnston, from Unit 205, is the NDP nominated candidate for Olds-Didsbury-Three Hills. Born and raised in Central Alberta, he understands the importance of the region within...
