For Immediate Release
Saint-Lin-Laurentides, QC – Sixty workers at VCI Composites are the newest members of IAM Local Lodge 1758.
“These workers had their own independent association and approached us to sign a service contract in 2017 in order to service their collective agreement with the employer,” explained IAM District Lodge 11 Directing Business Representative Pierre Grenier.
“That service agreement has now expired and they have chosen to join the IAM and we will now begin bargaining their first IAM collective agreement.”
The 60 members manufacture amongst other components, composite skin and structure materials for the new generation of aircraft flight simulators for CAE Canada.
The IAM is the largest union in Canada’s aerospace sector.
