Davie shipyard workers approve long-term agreement

Lévis, Québec- Davie Shipbuilding announced that 86% of its production workers, members of the Syndicat des travailleurs du chantier naval de Lauzon inc. (STCNL) affiliated with the Fédération de l’industrie manufacturière de la Confédération des syndicats nationaux (FIM-CSN), have voted in favor of a ground-breaking new long-term collective agreement.

This new collective agreement will run until June 30, 2030. It will provide stability and predictability as Davie continues on its growth path and implements a comprehensive remodelling of its working environment. The company will offer a forward looking, more flexible and diverse workplace valuing competencies, development through apprenticeships and long-term careers for its workers.

The agreement is the result of colossal joint efforts by the members of the negotiating teams of both STCNL (CSN) and Davie. It will be a driving force supporting Davie’s entry into Canada’s National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS).

« We are delighted the negotiated agreement has been strongly supported. It gives Davie and our workers stability and predictability to look forward to a new era of prosperity under the NSS,” said James Davies, President and Chief Executive Officer.

“Together, we can look forward to building Canada a new fleet of seven much-needed icebreakers, including a Polar Class. This new agreement sends a strong signal that « Davie est prêt! »

« This ground-breaking deal makes significant adjustments to wages and further strengthens Davie’s position as an employer of choice offering rewarding careers and the brightest of futures, » concluded Mr Davies. (Photo Davie)
