Local Lodge 99 Executive and our Bylaw Committee are looking to introduce several bylaw changes and membership attendance is extremely important. We will also be looking to our membership to elect 4 individuals to assist and learn from our Business Reps. we look forward to to seeing you all in June!

Reminder: 20 members must attend “in person” to qualify for quorum.

It’s understandable that some members won’t be able to attend due to personal or work-related reasons however, we are trying to ensure all members have an opportunity throughout the year to attend with a structured 2023 schedule.

Since ratification there has been quite a few communications from Finning’s Labour Relations team and their interpretation of the CBA. It’s clear that Labour Relations is trying to supersede one article over another or trying to bend the CBA in order to support their interpretation and ignore what was discussed during bargaining. Finning’s Labour Relations team has become combative, unreliable and willing to neglect the history behind our Collective Agreement that supports our membership.

Extremely disappointing to say the least!

Your Bargaining Committee is in continuous discussions trying to work with Labour relations to clarify several items:

  • TCRS standby pay/signed TA with changes ($150/week vs $5.00/hr)
  • Overtime averaging: Full stat credit for stat holiday on shift when the company does not let members work.
  • Overtime averaging: Starting on next shift after ratification not Oct 9th as communicated.
  • Approved travel time, bereavement, jury duty, injury pay counting towards the 160hr calculation
  • Double Time for overtime on Saturdays including 0.5ot after ratification for all members. Not just those on 8 or 10 hour shifts.
  • Honouring accommodation language already in the CBA

All of these items are being expedited to arbitration and will be dealt with as soon as possible!



When: Thursday November 10th @ 8:00am.
Where: West Harvest Quality Inn 17803 Stony Plain Rd, Edmonton Alberta
