„We have some assumptions that this was probably part of their layoffs,” said Kellie Scanlan, Unifor Canada`s director of the organization. Unifor is Canada`s largest private sector union, with more than 315,000 members across the country. While Evans was at home, another CNRL employee asked if he was wearing cards and if he would be a point of contact for employees if they wanted to support the union. Unifor is investigating allegations that six workers were laid off at a Canadian Natural Resources site south of Fort McMurray for trying to organize a union. Please note that when a collective agreement expires, its provisions remain in effect until a new collective agreement is negotiated or there is a strike or lockout. CuCC members, headquartered in Calgary, have ratified a 3-year agreement that provides them with a 2.2% salary increase for 2019 and guaranteed increases in 2020 and 2021 based on the cost of living.

CUCC is a distribution company that works primarily for gas companies in Calgary and Edmonton. The 40 employees include plant operators, hydrovacation and steering drills, fixators, workers and gas integrators. „Imagine people being fired, having children, having families, having homes. They go to work every day, they have clean work recordings.

And because they talked to the union, they don`t have a job anymore. For me, it should really make people`s heads spin,” she said. PCL Energy members have ratified a 32-month agreement providing for a 1.27% increase in the basic salary as well as increases in employers` health and social security contributions. PcL Energy employs more than 250 members in the oil and gas sector, including scaffolding builders, cabinetmakers, electricians, instrumentation technicians, welders, workers, scrap dealers, electricians, operators, equipment technicians and other trades. They worked mainly in Edmonton and Grand Cache. According to Unifor, six men employed at the CNRL Jackfish site were dismissed for no reason on October 23. All six participated in the attempt to organize a union through Unifor. „I heard what was going on, posters in support of the union, they were demolished and the company set camp,” Evans said. „It was hearsay and the next thing I know. I get a phone call and they launch me. The 32-month contract includes competitive salary rates and sector-specific bonuses with other contractors in the region.

Workers also receive a total of 8% of employer contributions for retirement provision and group RSP. In addition, they now have a competitive performance plan, paid for by the employer.
