Letter to the Members of Local 146
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
The expiration of our current BCA collective agreement is quickly approaching, May 1, 2015. The Building Trades of Alberta have agreed to start framework bargaining early in 2014.  We collectively have set dates in September to start the bargaining process at the all trade inclusive big table, with bargaining between the IBB and the BCA at the small table where some exclusive to the IBB proposals will be discussed.
As mentioned at the April monthly union meeting, I am seeking proposals from the members to be reviewed and possibly submitted for consideration by the bargaining committee to the BCA.  Please email, fax or regular mail your proposals to the attention of This email address is being protected from spambots.

Proposal Submission Deadline: May 31, 2014
