Earlier this week, the Alberta Labour Relations Board released their latest new applications report and in it was a new application for unionization.
The application was submitted on 2 September 2022 by Lodge 146 of the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, Iron Ship Builders, Blacksmiths, Forgers, and Helpers, otherwise known as The Boilermakers. They’re applying for union certification for a group of 5 workers employed by TIW Steel Platework Inc.
TIW delivers multi-trade installation, maintenance, and repair services and is a fully integrated unit of engineering, procurement, and construction of field erected steel platework structures.

The union is organizing for all the maintenance boilermakers at TIW, which is headquartered in St. Catherines, Ontario but has a western regional branch in Nisku, just south of Edmonton.
Since the ALRB doesn’t archive their new application reports on their website, here’s a copy of the most recent one.
