As a coalition, we believe that local infrastructure projects should be more beneficial to local communities than just the project in terms of it. Through Collective Performance Agreements (CBAs), these taxpayer-funded projects can provide qualified residents and traditionally under-represented groups in the craft sector, such as apprentices, Aboriginal workers and women in crafts, work, qualification and fair wages. Vancouver is the first metropolitan city in Canada to have a formal CBA policy in place that follows the community benefits frameworks put in place at the federal and provincial levels in 2018. “The vast majority of B.C. construction workers should change their union affiliation and freeze their pension packages and benefits to work on public projects,” said Dawn Rebelo, trainer of site C. Finance Minister Carole James made a statement on the benefits of the CBA. The new procedure of the Community Interest Agreement (CBA) is cooperation between municipalities, the development industry and the city. The policy aims to achieve the objectives of the fight against poverty and the economic development of the Community in the strategy for a healthy city. “This agreement ensures that traditionally under-represented tradespeople and apprentices benefit from competitive, equal and transparent wages and skills development,” she wrote. “Until recently, the employer community we represent wasn`t really involved in the discussions,” McCormack said.
“In a province where construction is growing rapidly and there is a lot of work to do, [our members] are weighing on the options between these public infrastructure projects and other projects they offer.” Public infrastructure projects are expected to bring direct and long-term benefits to B.C. workers. “It wasn`t the most transparent process,” he said. He recalls the opportunity to discuss the CBA with Minister Claire Trevena with a number of contractors of different sizes and agreements with unions. We are engaged with the public, a wide range of non-profit organizations and non-profit organizations, and with the real estate development sector throughout the development of the CBA policy. We thought this week`s legal challenge is not the first time that a Canadian municipal service agreement or project work contract has been legally challenged. With a budget of $8 million per year and a current workforce of 32, BCIB is responsible for implementing the framework for the province`s municipal services. Community Benefits Coalition of BC was created to ensure that publicly funded projects in British Columbia help ensure that the province`s municipalities pay workers a standard wage by providing safe work, qualifications and safe working conditions, such as apprentices, Aboriginal workers and women in crafts. These benefits can be guaranteed by collective performance agreements. “I think it`s a terrible policy, whether it`s the establishment of unions that take advantage of this type of legislation, or whether it`s an open store or a non-union, it would be just as wrong,” Jacob said.
