During the course of the CGS construction, the General Partnership is expected to employ, at the peak, around 700 skilled trade construction workers.
Some early work will begin before the end of 2017. Most of the hiring of trade labour will begin in 2018.
The General Partnership recently negotiated a site collective agreement with representatives of the Iron Workers Union, Local 764, Carpenters Union, Local 579, and Labourers’ Union, Local 1208. The three unions have formed the Council of Construction Trades Inc. to represent construction workers who will work on the project. These unions represent approximately 90% of the expected trade hours required for the project. The Council has arranged to source any additional required skilled trades for the project from the various building and construction trade unions within the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
For any employment inquiries about working on the project, please contact your provincial trade union representative.
