Skilled Members Working Production Update

As a result of 2015 National Negotiations those members who hold Skilled Trades credentials and are working in a production assignment will soon be receiving an application in the mail. This application will allow these members to indicate which Skilled Trade groups they are willing to be retrained in and the locations they would be interested in relocating to. When skilled job openings cannot be filled with a matching trade member through the Appendix A placement process, the National Parties may offer a retraining position to a member who has applied to that skilled group and location. Other placement opportunities, in accordance with the National Agreement, may be offered to these members.
