One of our members named Angelica from First Student Airdrie School Bus was unjustly terminated last year, and business agent Ken Jarvis fought to make sure this was corrected. We fought to make sure she got a settlement.
She said she is thankful for Ken Jarvis and Teamsters Local 362 for standing up for her rights and taking on the fight to make life better for workers and their families.
Several business agents had a meeting with the Lafarge Edmonton Members to discuss proposals for upcoming bargaining. This meeting will likely be sidetracked by the reconsideration application.
