Alberta Job Ready Dispatch
Alberta Job Ready Dispatch
In collective bargaining for the last BCA Collective Agreement, it was agreed a Liaison committee of both Union and BCA Contractors would work together to establish a set of standardized safety programs that would be required before workers were dispatched. The intent of the Alberta Job Ready Dispatch initiative was to reduce the amount of redundant safety training and get workers on the job sooner.
A reimbursement program has been put into place to compensate Lodge 146 members in good standing for costs incurred for the training required for the Alberta Job Ready Dispatch initiative. Members who have completed and paid for this training, on or after December 1, 2016, are eligible for reimbursement. Existing safety tickets must expire within 6 months in order to qualify for reimbursement. Only the courses listed below will be reimbursed. Refund amount and eligibility will be reviewed on a case by case basis and refunds will be issued in full or in part as determined by the Boilermaker Education Trust Fund. Please note that the course costs vary by provider and the amount reimbursed is subject to change without notice.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please email us at email@example.com.
