On Wednesday March 14th the Union met with Lewis & Company, a chartered professional accounting firm in Vancouver to seek an opinion on the tax assessments that the members are receiving from the CRA. The meeting resulted in an opinion letter being drafted for our members use. The letter will be mailed to all active field construction members and a copy posted on the website, please click here to view.
Our next step is that we have requested the Building Trades Council convene a special called meeting to discuss a path forward for all Unions. We were in touch with the President of the council this afternoon and can advise that our request for a meeting has his support. The results of the meeting will be reported on the website as details become available.
