In this week's preview, we look at some of the stories we'll be covering in the Journal of Commerce for the week of July 28th, 2014.

A B.C. union is defending an electrician who was suspended after an incident that shut down Vancouver's Skytrain system. The Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 7000 says the decision to suspend the employee is inappropriate and raises concerns about worker health and safety.

Staff writer Russell Hixson has a story from Alberta about a call for review of child labour laws after a 15-year-old was killed on a worksite.

Correspondent Myron Love has a story about the challenges of upgrading a busy Winnipeg underpass, and Stephen Bauld has a column on contractor and supplier relations.

Russell also has a story about the Industry Training Authority of B.C. and the BC Lions teaming up to promote trades education, and we also have a video from the BC Lions training camp with more info on the partnership.
