Although there was no agreement to extend seniority beyond the terms of the collective agreement, they offer a significant “benevolent payment” to all members of Hampton (formerly Conifex) Ft. St. James through cooperative discussions with the company. Gibbons said the local bargaining unit hoped to optimize the agreement as it deems fit to become a member, which will ultimately make the final decision.

Our local union represents more than 1,400 members in many sectors, including sawmilling, wood production, steel manufacturing, recycling, safety, transportation, construction, machining and more.

Union members 1-417 (Kamloops), 1-405 (Cranbrook) and 1-423 (Kelowna) have been out of contract since July 2018 and voted in favour of strikes last October. ETC Local 1-417 represents forestry workers in Mhlen, Kamloops (the plywood of Heffley Creek), Clearwater, Salmon Arm, Merritt and Clinton.

As you can imagine, the problems are complex.
We need to ensure that the collective agreement remains in force and is followed both now and in the future, while trying to get some interim assistance for our members, which could be considered out of the collective agreement.
