Story by CUPE Local 500

Another group of Emterra workers have decided to seek union representation through CUPE Local 500.

On May 29, a certification vote was held at the Manitoba Labour Board for the Drivers and Swampers at Emterra in Winnipeg.

“We’re encouraged and excited that these workers are interested in joining the Union,” said Local 500 President Mike Davidson.  “We antcipate that this process will be finalized by the end of June and will update the membership as more information becomes available.”

On May 6, 2013, about 80 employees who work at Emterra’s material recycling facility became members of CUPE Local 500.

Please watch for further updates in the coming weeks.
