Machinists at KAL Tire Repair Plant in Sparwood Get Significant Wage Boost

 

Shop Steward Dustin Alaric is part of the Bargaining Committee

 

IAMAW members at the KAL Tire Repair Plant in Sparwood have received wage increases which reflect the value of their skill and work.

Repairing these tires saves the customer thousands of dollars.

At the plant, large industrial tires are repaired. These giant tires cost $100,000 each and, with repairs, they can last 20% longer. Our Members cut out the damage, put in reinforcing panels of kevlar and then use the vulcanizing processes to repair the tire.

The new wages include a wage adjustment of $1 in each of the first and second years plus 2%, 2% and 3% over the three year agreement.
