Media Contact: Chris Stannell Public Relations Manager 604.699.4368 chris.stannell@teck.com “It is clear that the majority of Fording and Elkview members support the agreements,” said ETC 7884 President Don Takala, “How the democratic process works.” Teck also announced that unionized workers at the Fording River and Elkview steel mines in British Columbia have ratified new five-year collective agreements that expire on April 30, 2021 and October 31, 2020. As a result of the new collective agreements, Teck expects a one-time additional tax charge of approximately $35 million in the fourth quarter. Both agreements imposed a one-year wage freeze because market conditions were difficult, but for the remainder of the corresponding five-year contracts, wage increases of 2%. “If you extend the day for a while, especially for a 12-hour period, that`s obviously a sensitive point,” he said. “From our point of view, they were not prepared to pay for it. They were willing to send us to picket lines if we refused to accept them. I am pleased that we have an agreement, but it is clear that Teck is prepared to use his financial power to ensure that he gets what he wants at the negotiating table. Then workers will choose a bargaining committee to negotiate their first collective agreement. Dean Runzer, general manager of Fording River, and Don Sander, managing director of Elkview Operations, said they were pleased to have negotiated new collective agreements. The agreement was reached with the help of the government-appointed mediator, Vince Ready.

The Committee focuses on ensuring an agreement that promotes and supports a healthy lifestyle that protects our members, families and communities. The union asked the company to begin negotiations in October. 83% of Fording River Steelworkers have ratified their agreement after working without a contract since May of this year. Teck Resources announced that employees of Operation Elkview and Operation Fording River are ratifying the new five-year collective agreements. “It is clear that the majority of Fording and Elkview members support the agreements,” said ETC 7884 President Don Takala, “This is how the democratic process works.” “Despite global uncertainty in the midst of COVID-19, our union is committed to ensuring that this mine can operate safely and has maintained production and profitability,” Liddle added.
