OFFICIAL RTG STATEMENT
Early on June 14, 2019, the Bois Forte Reservation Tribal Council was made aware of information that one of its employees had engaged in activity that is unacceptable for any Bois Forte employee. The Tribal Council has a responsibility to ensure that the Reservation is a safe place for all residents, and therefore immediately terminated the employment of the person. The Council has no information that any crime has been committed on the Reservation, but it has referred the matter to law enforcement and will cooperate in any future investigation of this or any other incident.

TRADES TRAINING! UNDERGROUND PIPELINE ASSOCIATED
This program will include Empowerment, Safety and Industry training in a classroom setting and is expected to run for 5 weeks. Once completed, participants will then proceed into one of the Trades for a 4-week hands on training. The end result of this program is graduates will enter into the union program they trained in and then pursue that career. This program will require the participant to join the union upon completion but will not require them to work on the Line 3 replacement projects, however, the work on that project will be provided to anyone who wants to work and the will be hired in most cases, faster than if they choose to sit on the bench and wait to be called up for work elsewhere.
There will be an initial Drug Screen, random testing throughout and we will also do a test prior to the participant graduating to the hands-on portion. Lodging and a stipend will be provided during both portions of this training will be provided. In addition, participants will get work boots and other PPEs provided. After successfully completing and joining a trade, we will also cover the initiation fees for the participant.
This program is open to enrolled tribal members, descendants and also to non-native spouses/parents of dependent enrolled tribal members. If someone is unable to attend one of these recruitment fairs, they just need to contact us and we can set up a separate meeting to get back up documentation, go over their application and do the initial drug screen. We expect to have multiple trainings in each area so recruitment will be on-going and continue after these initial events.
