ATTENTION LOCAL 92 MEMBERS:
Three year Alberta National Maintenance Agreement to become effective January 1st, 2017:
Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As we’ve seen the price of oil drastically fall over the last number of years, layoffs and cutbacks have shaken many building trade unions in Alberta. Therefore, revisions to any collective agreement with our contractors are largely reflective of the current economic climate in our province.
Despite what other trades may advertise, each and every trade union representative sat at the table during preliminary negotiations and was aware with the new terms proposed and how each term would impact the members. Furthermore, it should be noted that the GPMA and the NMA are national agreements that govern work rates across Canada. These collectives are negotiated by the international representatives of their respected unions.
Please see link below for IMPORTANT correspondence regarding results of the Alberta NMA Bargaining. Please read the following attachment from Brett MacKenzie, Executive Director of the General Presidents Maintenance committee of Canada.
