March 19, 2020 - Local 258 IBEW Business Manager Doug McKay is responding to reports of members who work at some of the Union’s signatory Line Contractor companies are receiving lay-off notices as a result of a shortage of work as BC Hydro suspends some line contractor work due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Employers are required to provide a list of members and their seniority date to the Union Hall and are further required to lay off according to the seniority list and the collective agreement (Article 3.3 + Article 3.4). Members will be rehired by seniority and Brother McKay advises members who have been laid off to contact the Union’s Dispatch office directly. Phone 604-524-3574, toll-free 1-877-520-3305, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
