In the June 2023 Bargaining Update released earlier this month, Alberta’s jobs, economy, and northern development ministry indicated that a new collective agreement for elevator constructors had been reached.
The new 4-year agreement replaces the previous agreement, which had expired this past April, and it will expire in April 2027.
Workers covered by this new agreement can expect to see 4 wage increases during the life of the contract.
That’s a combined total increase of 14.7%.
No other changes were available by the time this article went to press.
The new contracts will affect over 600 elevator construction workers throughout the province.
