Fabrication Shop Workers at Nason Contracting See Gains in New Agreement
Edmonton—CLAC Local 63 members working in the fabrication shop of Nason Contracting Group Ltd. have voted overwhelmingly in favour of a new collective agreement.
The contract, which is effective from January 1, 2021, until July 30, 2023, was ratified by 95 percent of the membership in December. The agreement keeps wages steady and provides some improvements to premiums and allowances for such expenses as boots and tools.
“We reached an understanding over hours of work and overtime,” says John Taekema, CLAC representative. “Employees can now collect short term disability after seven days. We also made improvements to the RSP contribution by the company.”
Local 63 represents 45 members of various trades in the Nason fabricating shop. Nason works on construction projects throughout the Edmonton area.
