What’s next? Wapasu Update

Members at Wapsu have overwhelmingly rejected the Company’s demand for concessions. Now we need to decide what to do next. Please give us your feedback through the link below. 

The options in this poll are based on suggestions provided by the Wapsu membership over the last few weeks.

Local 401 can confirm that we have not heard any update from Civeo leadership about what their plans are regarding the desired concessions. We will let you know as soon as we receive an update from Civeo.

Your union has the law firm Chivers Carpenter prepped and ready to assist with our legal fight once Civeo makes its move.  

However, we are not just waiting on Civeo to play their cards. We will be sending representatives from UFCW Local 401 and Wapasu to Ottawa in the coming weeks to meet with federal politicians on the current situation and Civeo’s unreasonable demands.  

“It is important that Civeo knows that we will use every legal means necessary to stop them from contracting your work out,” said Chris O’Halloran, Executive Director for UFCW Local 401. “We will also be contacting the provincial government and asking them to intervene on your behalf.” 

The UCP government can stop companies like Civeo from engaging in unreasonable behaviour of this nature in the oil sands.   

If you have any questions, please contact Chris O’Halloran at 587-999-6448, by email at cohalloran@ufcw401.ab.ca, or via Facebook @chrisohalloranufcw401. You can also contact Union Labour Relations Officer Clayton Herriot at 780-742-4257 or cherriot@ufcw401.ab.ca.

In solidarity,
Chris O’Halloran
