GMPA/NMA Major Changes Coming!!


We have some more good news from the Local.  For those working under the GMPC/NMC Agreement, we are excited to announce that effective January 1, 2023, double time (DT) and hours earned have returned in the 2023/2024 agreement. 

  • DT will now begin at after ten (10) hours on all regular workdays
  • DT for all hours worked on Saturdays
  • DT for all hours worked on Sundays (for both Long-Term and Short-Term Maintenance workers)
  • DT for all hours on all Statutory Holidays
  • We have eliminated the $0.75 difference for LTM in the Fort McMurray area

This announcement is well deserved and will surely help our members to live a better quality of life.

Fraternally Yours,

Rod McKay
