Productive environment, safety focused

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
CLAC has been a good resource for job search and training. Representation was mediocre: While working on CLAC jobs I could always count on a CLAC steward being present as a worker on the job site (not management or supervision) these workers were generally chosen based on their credentials rather than their loyalty to the company on site, this to me speaks of honesty/good intentions on CLAC's part. However as working conditions worsened and morale went down due to changes made by the hiring companies and clients, the CLAC stewards were powerless. Although CLAC has good intentions, they don't seem to have any actual pull when representing the workers. They are only there as a formality for when workers are dismissed so that on paper proper procedure was followed. Training was decent: CLAC has on-site training and training facilities to make sure workers are ready to enter the job site.

Worst management i have ever seen. And i have been on a great deal of sites

I am a pro that has been taken by thier poor management. Be careful. Thier site owners run clac and will not be truthful about any safety violations. They are a weak union that is comfortable in thier office environments. They have forgotten thier roots.

Drive them out of the workplace

Horrible ..... management pets . All trades doing other trades scope of work . They would hire a monkey if they could . The monkey would be able to do anything someone shows him . Then it’s a banana ! Good monkey now go splice a wire for us . Then go do some civil and after that see if you can do concrete or steel . We will show you how to weld too . Give it a try . Good monkey !

Productive and fun workplace, with table tennis

CLAC provides a challenging band exciting place to work. The team environment, where everyone is working togehter and helping each other is great. Last minute projects crop up all the time. It makes life interesting and makes the job exciting. There is also table tennis!

Pros

Remote working, team environment, table tennis

Cons

ability to advance varies based on department and management

Not a "union"

Horrible organization, does nothing to support workers advancement or address their health and safety concerns in the workplace. CLAC will always side with the employer. I had no expectations in the beginning and left completely disappointed. I would rather work non union and deal with an employer directly than work through CLAC. I don't recommend their organization at all.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Everything about this so called "Christian" affiliated so called union

It was interesting working for a Union

Not a lot of room for advancement, enjoyed the time I had there. Amazing group of colleagues, management is not well trained unfortunately. A lot of room for them to grow their work culture into a more positive one.

A "union" to keep real unions out of crooked companies.

Company had broken black and white rules within the collective agreement. Ie; parking allowance not being paid, visiting more then one job site in a day via your own vehicle, employing unqualified workers in a red seal trade. This union is a joke. When contacted about about the parking allowance not being followed in accordance with the collective agreement we were told " just do what they say" ...."when the agreement was written we were thinking about the service guys not all the employees". Collective agreement clearly said: 18$ parking allowance per day for all employees.

Pros

None

Poor representation

Why would a UNION allow a company to harrass an employee sexually and phycologically and then without even talking to employee give them permission to get rid of him the person is totally mentally done with thoughts of suicide. Your not a union or Christian.

Pros

Nil

Cons

Pro company

Great organization, good people, strong commitment to cause

CLAC is a wonderful organization with a strong commitment to the cause of workers across Canada and the world. They have experienced tremendous growth which is a testament to the service they provide. It can be apparent in some teams within the organization that the rapid expansion of the business has not been entirely matched with the organizational structures and managerial know-how. The compensation, benefits, pension, and additional benefits are excellent and the work environment in many of the offices is lovely and friendly; you really get the sense that you are a welcome member of the CLAC family.

Pros

pension; benefits; close-knit teams/community; strong cause

Cons

unclear management roles; unclear definition of power structures

union made for employers

This union does not enforce collective agreements whatsoever and is designed with the companys best interest in mind. I would never ever work for a company associated with clac again.

Favoritism

if you're picking orders in acheson, you'll see the high turnover, the management which couldn't manage its way out of a wet paper bag, favoritism, and lack of direction.....this warehouse will be the new Western Grocer. It's a new building but its already in disgusting shape. Be wary

Cons

favoritism

Fun place to work with excellent co-workers

This was a great learning experience and place to grow. The people I worked with were all extremely friendly and willing to help or teach whenever there was time. Management was very accommodating with appointments or if family things came up, and the whole team was very supportive.

Pros

Awesome team, well established.

Cons

Distance from my home

Amazing job location, pleasure to work there. The camp needs work

Up at 5pm on bus by 6 pm start work at 7pm. start the shift with a tool box meeting an a small safety talk then be given work scope and crews for the night. learned how to work safe in an open pit mine. not to happy with management, they needed work. coworkers were great like always there are some you can do without but you take what you get and work with it. hardest part of job was to stay awake during your shift. also not to take short cuts just to get the work done. best part of job for me was seeing all the pieces moved and assembled and operational again. without injury.

Pros

lots of swag

Cons

menu at lodge needed improvement, activities for workers during time off were nil.
