British Columbia Labour Relations Board clears way for CMAW carpenters

Journal of Commerce
The British Columbia Labour Relations Board has ordered the Allied Hydro Council to look to CMAW for dispatch of carpenters for work on the Revelstoke 5 project. This victory is the latest in a series of skirmishes with the International Carpenters Union, which has been attempting to block CMAW local 2300 carpenters from working on the site.

The ruling, which was released Friday by Ritu N. Mahil on behalf of the board, noted that CMAW Local 2300 was the only constituent union of the Allied Hydro Council which represents carpenters.

The board had earlier decided that CMAW could replace the BC Provincial Council of Carpenters on the council.
