Alberta Job Ready Dispatch

Alberta Job Ready Dispatch

Revised: 01-23-23

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. Tickets must be valid for 60 days after dispatch date.
