Port Coquitlam, BC – Failure by the employer to deliver on promises of past wage increases drove CNC operators into the arms of the IAM. CNC machine operators and shipping and receiving personnel at Advanced CNC Machinery Limited are the newest members of IAM Local Lodge 692.
“These people have been waiting a long time for promised wage increases and they never materialized,” explained IAM District Lodge 250 Business Representative Al Cyr. “The final straw was when the owner showed up with a new car and bragged about his new boat to the people he promised wage increases to. His attitude toward his employees changed dramatically. It didn’t take long to secure this organizing drive.”
Advanced CNC Machinery provides precision CNC milling and turning of all types of alloy steel, stainless steel and aluminum alloys for medical, marine, aircraft, electronic and transportation industries.
