Subject: Change in union representation: International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) Local 115
Last week, pursuant to an application to the Labour Relations Board from the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) Local 115, UBC staff represented by IUOE 882 held a vote to express their choice in bargaining agents. As a result of the vote, the Labour Relations Board has determined that IUOE 115 will be the union representing this unit effective immediately.
IUOE 115 will now represent the operating engineers and certain mechanical maintenance trades in Building Operations, Energy & Water Services, and Student Housing & Hospitality Services at UBC’s Vancouver campus.
We look forward to building a collaborative and constructive relationship with IUOE 115.
