Finning strike comes to an end

A more than month-long strike by hundreds of unionized employees at heavy equipment dealer Finning International Inc. in Fort St. John and across B.C. is expected to end next week with the approval of a new collective agreement.

Finning, the world’s largest Caterpillar equipment dealer, announced Friday that a majority of the 700 employees represented by the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers in B.C. and the Yukon voted to approve the deal.

The four-year contract provides for annual wage increases of four per cent in the first and fourth year, and three per cent in years two and three.

This agreement ends a work stoppage in B.C. that began on June 22. Employees are expected back on the job starting next Tuesday.
