The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) is part of a coalition of unions that are fighting to reverse the government of Canada’s decision to remove workers at Canada’s Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) formerly Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) from the Public Service Pension Plan. This decision was made without any consultation or discussion with unions representing Canadian nuclear workers and is unfair to IBEW members who work for CNL at the Chalk River site. If allowed to pass, this decision will effectively take away the rights, benefits and pension plans IBEW members have worked so hard to obtain, without providing an opportunity to negotiate.
Let the Government know you stand with your fellow Canadian nuclear workers. There are several ways that IBEW members can get involved with this initiative.
