We are happy to report that the BC Regional Council of Carpenters was successful in our raid application for ISSL. ISSL was certified with Communication, Energy, Paperworkers Local 470. As a result of our organizing activities, CMAW also applied for certification to raid CEP 470 even though CMAW and CEP formed a joint bargaining council and CMAW is affiliated to the CEP. A majority of ISSL employees voted to change their representation to the BC Regional Council of Carpenters. We welcome the ISSL employees into our union.
