Frontline workers are there for our communities, keeping everyone safe and providing for our needs. Don’t they deserve a fair and living wage?

In 2019, the Prime Minister asked the Labour Minister to begin work on implementing a $15 federal minimum wage. This would set a much-needed benchmark that provinces should then follow. It’s a crucial first step towards fairness and a living wage for all workers.

Click link below Write to the Minister of Labour and ask her to make this an urgent priority.

***Please be advised, that if you have not been previously dispatched to any Pipeline Jobs through Local 92, you will be required to provide proof of experience PRIOR to bidding in the form of a ROE or Letterhead from the Company you previously worked for.

 

Please be advised that PayPal has been replaced with E-Transfers as a method of payment for monthly dues. Unlike PayPal, there will be no service fees charged by the local. Therefore, if you E-Transfer a payment of $39.00 then that is the amount that will be applied to your Account. 

 

To complete an E-Transfer, the individual MUST follow the following steps:

·      One time only 'add new contact': Local 92 - while logged into your bank account & ensure that you click 'notify by email' Then enter the following email address: dues@local92.com

·      When sending your E-Transfer, please ensure that in the message box you put: Members Name & Member Number (if you have it) or Members Name and last 4 digits of the Members Social Insurance Number EVERY TIME you send a E-Transfer. This will ensure that the payment is applied to the correct member.

·      If you are unable to send e-transfer as an automatic deposit, you will not be able to use the e-transfer option. 

Notice to Members enrolled in the voluntary RSAP Program: Please remember if you have not worked in a 6-month time period, your RSAP will go dormant. Please call the RSAP Program to re-test at 1-888-493-0725. If you are unsure of your RSAP status you can call Amanda Stefanizyn at the Edmonton office directly at (780)801-5126. Local 92 does not govern or administrate this program and we do not want Members going to site with no pre-access or active RSAP status, as this means you will not gain access to the site immediately and could potentially miss out on pay due to having to test when you arrive.  

PLEASE NOTE:  Local 92 does not send members for Alcohol and Drug testing. The contractors require you to take these tests as per the site owners. You must refer to your dispatch slip and call the phone number that is listed next to "A&D Testing" in order to have a test booked in your area. Please do not proceed to orientation until you have spoken with the contractor.  

Please ensure that all your tickets and skills are updated and on file for bidding purposes. Please do NOT bid on any job that you do not have the required tickets for. Any members who have any further questions regarding Local 92 dispatch rules, please call 780 426 6630 and speak to a business agent. 

Any members that wish to read the Collective Agreement that they are working under can access them by visiting the CLRA (Construction Labour Relations of Alberta) website.

Please note: it is becoming increasingly more important that ANY members who accept a dispatch to any site, have a VALID Government issued photo ID. If you do not have valid government issued photo ID please do NOT accept a dispatch.

 

IF YOU SUCCESSFULLY BID ON A JOB AND DISPATCH CANNOT REACH YOU WITHIN ONE HOUR OF CLOSING THE CALLOUT THE JOB WILL GO TO THE NEXT LOWEST BIDDER ON THE LIST OR BACK ON THE CALLOUT
