Good day Union Family
Since 2018, Local 110 has been working through the bargaining process with our Contractor’s Registered Employer Organization (REO) Construction Labour Relations Alberta (CLRA).
As everyone has heard over the last few years this round of bargaining has been significantly difficult for all trades. At our last General Membership meeting I reported that it was likely that an agreement would not be reached and since more than seventy five percent of trades had settled Local 110 would be getting an agreement through arbitration. I am happy to report that this is not the case.
As of this morning I have signed a completed Memorandum of Agreement (MOA). Over the next few weeks all members will have a chance to vote on the agreement and information meetings will be set up. Once arrangements are made more information and dates will be provided.
I would like to thank the other members of the Local 110 bargaining committee, Doug Casemore, Stacy Edmondson, and Derek Stock, each one represented our members with the up most professionalism through a difficult process. Additional thanks to the CLRA representative and our contractors involved with the bargaining process. Lastly, thank you to the appointed mediator that helped guide and push both sides to get to a final MOA.
