What do I do on Monday, May 2, 2022?
Do not report to work on jobsites covered by the Provincial Collective Agreement on Monday, May 2, 2022, whether it is operating or transporting of equipment. For the time being, we will not be picketing jobs unless you are advised otherwise by your Union Rep.
Your Union will be issuing a further communication tomorrow about next steps. In the time being, please remain available to join a picket line if called upon by your Union. Please make sure to keep your phone with you in case you receive a call.
