Productive and enjoyable team of people to work with at CUC.
Gas Fitter (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 1 March 2015
As part of the Gas Fitters, we often cut & thread, install and test gas piping, install and activate new gas meters and regulators, meter moves and exchanges for gas utility companies such as Atco Gas, Fortis BC and Sask Energy.
I learned a lot about gas utility type work in the gas fitting trade.
The management are a good bunch of guys. They are easy to get along with and very friendly and easy to talk to.
The co-workers I has at CUC were a very good bunch of guys over-all. They truly gave you the feeling that they "got your back" so to speak.
The hardest part of the job can be sitting and waiting for the underground works crew to finish their projects first before the gas fitting work can commence with the tie-in of the riser to the building service.
The most enjoyable parts of the job is having a chance to work with a great bunch of guys, the ability to work independently on jobs, yet still be part of a team. Also this is a unionized position with CLAC Local 63 that offers a very good benefit package and excellent group discounts.
Union wages and benefits and lots of OT when they do work.
Seasonal work, lay-offs & management always makes last minute decisions.
