Union ratifies contract with Teck Trail

USW members vote in favour of a five-year deal

Members of the United Steelworkers locals 480 and 9705 have voted in favour of ratification of the mediator’s recommendations in their contract with Teck.

After five days of voting, which concluded Thursday, 90 per cent of Local 480 voted in favour of the deal along with 94 per cent of Local 9705.

The previous collective agreement between Teck and the USW locals expired May 31, affecting over 900 production and maintenance workers and approximately 160 office/technical employees.

The new five-year agreement is retroactive to June 1 and will expire at the end of May 2022.
