Good day Union Family
At 11:00 PM Wednesday April 26, 2023, voting closed for the new Provincial Construction Collective Agreement. This morning I was provided the results from BKY. This has been our most successful ratification vote in decades with 63.5% of Members retuning ballots. By majority vote the agreement has been accepted.
I was informed last week from the CLRA that the contractors also ratified the agreement. As such the changes will be starting as of May 7, 2023. For those Members working under the NMA/GPMA agreements the wage changes are being picked up by those agreements and the committee is working to have the rates updated before May 7th as well.
If you have any questions, please contact me at the Edmonton union hall.
