Alberta’s unionized Millwrights are among the highest paid construction workers in the province.
Our Provincial Millwrights Collective Agreement gives Journeymen $45.50/hr (Total package including employer paid pension and benefits $60.15/hr)
Vacation pay is paid on all earned hours, and paid each payday.
We work a 40-hour week. Overtime is paid at 1.5 times the regular hourly rate for the first 2 hours (Monday through Friday), and at double time beyond 2 hours. All weekend overtime is paid at double time.
In our latest contract, we negotiated a clause that recognizing inflation – a first for the unionized construction industry!
The clause guarantees that we receive specified annual wage increases, OR the Alberta annual inflation rate + 1%, whichever is greater.
