To all our Finning members: the votes are in. The Finning Collective agreement has been ratified with 82% of the members in favour of the memorandum. Local 99 would like to thank the members for their involvement and would especially like to thank the negotiation committee and Business Rep Kevin Clark for their hard work. Kevin has stated that the work on putting the new Collective Agreement together will begin right away and expects that it will be completed in a few weeks. Once the the agreement is put together, it will go to the printers. After that, your local stewards will be sent Collective agreements to distribute to the membership. Stay tuned for updates. A copy of the new Collective agreement will be available here as soon as the details are completed and a finished copy is available.

A message from Business Representative and Organizer Matt Barnable:

“Attention all members of Local Lodge 99. We have filed an application for certification to represent approximately 95 employees of Weldco Heavy Industries at Fort Mackay AB as of January 17, 2019. We are extremely proud to have the opportunity to represent these workers should we be successful in getting certification with the Alberta Labour Relations Board. It takes courage for workers to join together to make a change, and we are optimistic of what the future holds for the IAM and these employees. The certification process can take some time, and we will keep you updated as it progresses."
