Waterous Workers See the Light and Join the Machinists!

March 22, 2011

Edmonton, AB - There are 16 additional happy faces at Waterous Power Systems and they belong to the newest members of IAMAW Local Lodge 1722.

Parts and service office personnel have joined the existing collective agreement, which previously covered only mechanics, welders, labourers, electricians and unlicensed employees. “I think these workers finally realized what they had been missing by not being a member of the IAM, they hadn’t seen a wage increase in over three years “said IAMAW District 14 Business Representative Kevin Clark.

The new members received raises of 14.58 per cent over three years retroactive to September 2010. Additionally they received job descriptions, defined seniority and lay off parameters.

Waterous Power Systems is the authorized distributor of MTU, MTU Onsite Energy, Detroit Diesel, Allison Transmission, Mercedes-Benz, and GE Energy product lines. They power all aspects of industry including oilfield, mining, transportation, power generation, agriculture, construction & industrial, and forestry.

IAMAW, among the largest industrial trade unions in North America, represents more than 700,000 active and retired members, and administers more than 5,000 contracts in transportation, woodworking, aerospace, manufacturing and defense related industries.
