Leduc transit workers file for unionization

If successful, this would result in the unionization of 14 workers employed by Leduc Transit.

Last week, the Alberta Labour Relations Board released their final New Applications Report for June 2023. In the report is a new application for union certification in Alberta.

The application was filed on 12 June 2023 by Local 362 of the General Teamsters Union.

This union is applying on behalf of all transit workers employed by the City of Leduc, except those in office or clerical positions.

Leduc Transit is a partnership between the City of Leduc and Leduc County, offering a public transit service connecting the Leduc and Nisku areas to stops at the Edmonton International Airport, the Premium Outlet Collection, and the Century Park LRT station in south Edmonton.

They also operate Leduc Assisted Transportation Service, a door-to-door, driver-assisted transportation service for seniors and for persons with disabilities within Leduc.

According to the application, if the union certification is approved, it would apply to 14 workers with Leduc Transit.

The ALRB has scheduled a hearing for this application for 16 June 2023. The employer will have an opportunity then to present arguments for why certification shouldn’t occur at that location.

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