Avenue Living maintenance workers trying to unionize

The employer owns and manages rental properties in 21 communities throughout the Prairie provinces.

Earlier this week, the Alberta Labour Relations Board released their most recent New Applications Report. In the report is a new application for union certification in Alberta.

The application was filed on 21 February 2023 by Local 401 of the United Food and Commercial Workers.

This union is applying on behalf of all maintenance workers who are employed in Bonnyville with Avenue Living Communities, a large corporation that owns and manages rental properties throughout the Prairie provinces. They are based out of Calgary.

According to the application, if the union certification is approved, it would apply to 5 employees working for Avenue Living.

The ALRB has scheduled a hearing for this application to occur on 7 March 2022.

Since the ALRB doesn’t archive their new application reports, here’s a copy of the most recent one.
