Pickering Ontario on the verge of implementing “fair wage” policy

June 21, 2011

On June 13th city councilors voted to recommend a “fair wage” policy for contracts over S1 million. Workers affected by this policy would likely be those in the construction trades. The policy is supported by Terry Dorgan, an agent of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 894, who believes the policy “promotes safety on the job, assures that you’re getting the most qualified people on the job and taxpayers will definitely get their money’s worth.”
