AVCORP ANNOUNCES LABOUR ACTION AT DELTA, BRITISH COLUMBIA MANUFACTURING FACILITY
Avcorp Industries Inc. has initiated a lockout of unionized employees at its Delta, B.C., facility following a lockout notice being provided on Sept. 16, 2019.
The collective agreement between the company and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (Lodge 250) (the union) expired on March 31, 2019, and the company has been bargaining in good faith since that time. The prolonged negotiations, the union's strike mandate and labour disruptions precipitated the company's actions. The lockout affects approximately 270 workers in Delta, B.C.
The company's operations will be substantially reduced during the lockout and is operating on a reduced basis at the present time. The company continues to bargain in good faith.
The Avcorp group designs and builds major airframe structures for some of the world's leading aircraft companies, including BAE Systems, Boeing, Bombardier, Lockheed Martin and Subaru Corp. The Avcorp group has more than 60 years of experience, over 700 skilled employees and 636,000 square feet of facilities.
We seek Safe Harbor.
