BC Forklift Operators join IAM

Monday April 10, 2017
For Immediate Release

Delta, BC – Forklift operators at South Fraser Container Services, part of the Sankyo Group of Companies, have joined the IAM.

“Wage disparity among the workers and respect in the workplace were the key reasons for this group joining the IAM,” explained IAM District Lodge 250 Business Representative Al Cyr. “This is a very solid group of workers, they stuck together during the ten day waiting period of application. They never wavered, they were determined to join.”

The 15 new members of IAM Local Lodge 692 reload export goods such as lumber, steel, veneers, and roofing shingles into containers. South Fraser Container Services take products originating from Vancouver Island, mainland British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon, for shipment overseas.
