Teamsters want to unionize workers at trucking company

The union is trying to organize all the workers at the Edmonton-based company.

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 23 January 2023 by Local 362 of the General Teamsters Union.

The Teamsters are applying on behalf of all employees who work for 2XL Transport Ltd., which provides specialized hauling services and is based out of Edmonton.

According to the application, if the union certification is approved, it would apply to all the employees working for 2XL Transport throughout the province, which currently is just four.

The ALRB has scheduled a hearing for this application to occur on 6 Febraury 2022.

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