Approximately 60 workers at the Alstom Canada plant in Brampton, ON, have officially joined the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference – Maintenance of Way Employees Division (TCRC-MWED). Workers at the plant manufacture passenger trains for commuter transit.
The negotiating committee met July 13 though July 17 in Quebec City. We broke into subcommittees; one group to deal with proposals related to hours of work and another to deal with proposals related to feeder drivers, mechanics, subcontracting and Appendix B. This was done to speed up the process, better define the issues at hand and explain ourselves more clearly.
Thinking of joining a union? Here is how we can help.
