The Teamsters union has won the right to represent attendants at the Site C work camp, against the wishes of the company hired to build it.

On Nov. 2, the Labour Relations Board dismissed an objection by ATCO Two Rivers Camp Services calling the union’s application for certification “premature.”

Close to two dozen workers servicing the temporary work camp at the dam site had been seeking representation by the union while work continues on a permanent camp, set for completion next summer.

“Taking into consideration the evidence and the submissions of the parties with respect to the nature of the employer's operation, the nature and degree of build-up, its imminence and certainty, the representative character of the existing employees, and weighing the competing interests of present and future employees, I conclude that the union's application for certification is not premature due to an anticipated build-up,” Vice-chair Leah Terai wrote in her decision
