Calgary, AB – 26 new IAM members voted to accept their very first IAM contract. Last week, the new IAM members of Local Lodge 2583 in Calgary, Alberta ratified a first collective agreement with Belterra. They join Belterra workers in British Columbia.
“While we were able to achieve a 2-year deal and get 16.5% wage increases since ratification. The real reason we were at the table was to address work-life balance, structure and stability,” said IAM District 14 Business Representative Kyle Franzen. “This group stood strong together. They went in knowing what needed to change and got the job done.”
The 26 new members help in the manufacture, maintenance and repair of conveyor belts and other equipment. Belterra provides conveyor belt and material flow handling solutions and services with 19 locations across Canada.
