Alberta carpenters, roofers ready for strike

article: CBC News
The Alberta Regional Council of Carpenters and Allied Workers said in a news release it plans to serve strike notice Wednesday morning to Construction Labour Relations, the umbrella group that negotiates the contract for the workers.

However, under a Alberta labour law, if 19 of the 25 groups in the province's unionized construction industry negotiate a deal with their employers, the remaining groups have to go to arbitration and can't walk off the job.

Right now, 18 have a deal.

The carpenters in ab have no plan no strategy,no leadership,no STRIKE pay. I hope the members are prepared to wait a long time to get a raise, the other trades already
