September 20, 2023 By Rock to Road Staff
FORT MCMURRAY, Alta. – A new collective agreement, reached between TBG Contracting and the Twin Bridges Employees’ Association, will see workers receive a retroactive wage increase of five per cent over a three-year period.
TBG Contracting, a division of Lafarge Canada providing aggregate products and services to Northern Alberta, has nearly 50 employees represented by the Twin Bridges Employees’ Association that have been working without a contract after their last agreement expired at the end of 2021.
The new, three-year deal will include the wage increase, which breaks down to an annual increase of 1.67 per cent, and a new travel allowance ranging for employees travelling to worksites 95 kilometres or more from Fort McMurray.
Pension plans have also been changed as a part of this new contract. Previous plans were based on per hour worked, while the new contract has a pension structure that is equally shared between the worker and TBG on a percentage basis. Default contribution rate is set at three per cent, with TBG matching contributions of up to four per cent.
The new contract is retroactive to 2021 and will expire in December 2024.
