Dear Members & Teammates,

It’s time to roll up your sleeves, because International Union of Operating Engineers Local 942, as well as IUOE locals across Canada, has officially become Partners for Life a group with Canadian Blood Services! This means that we will work together as a group to reach a donation pledge for the year in order to help contribute to Canada’s blood supply.

Since someone in Canada will need blood every minute of every day of the year, our commitment to donating blood as a group throughout the year can really make a big impact on those in need. This is one of the most direct ways that we can give back to our community and actually save lives in the process!

We have set a pledge to donate 10 units of blood this year, and we need as many of you as possible to donate on behalf of our team in order to meet that goal.

Learn how your donation can impact someone’s life by reading blood recipient stories at, or by watching video testimonials at

If you’re interested in donating blood on behalf of our group, I encourage you to register as a member of our team at By registering just once, each donation made by our members will automatically be attributed to our Partners for Life team. To register you will need our Partner ID #: INTE010893

To donate blood individually, please call 1-888-2-DONATE (1-888-236-6283) to book an appointment. You can also find an up-to-date clinic schedule for your area by typing in your city name or postal code in the “Find a Clinic” search bar at

Wondering if you’re eligible to donate blood? Visit or call 1-888-2-DONATE (1-888-236-6283) and ask to speak to a nurse.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Thank you,

Tammy Chaisson
President / Business Manager
