On the morning of April 10th during the Bargaining Council meeting, Business Representative Jordan Streng was invited to speak to the Council regarding the recent flood of tax assessments that the members of the Boilermakers and other affiliated Trades have faced in British Columbia. Please be aware that we are not the only Province in this predicament, this affects all Canadians in similar circumstances.
Brother Streng reported that he had been approached by a senior CRA official from the Vancouver office and that official was requesting a meeting to discuss our concerns. The Bargaining Council was very receptive to Brother Streng’s report and have asked that he contact this official again in order to make arrangements for a face to face meeting with Business Managers and Business Reps from all crafts.
We will update this post once a meeting date has been arranged and will also report the outcome of the meeting.
