Kudos

L-128 at Timmins Kiddmet

WE WOULD LIKE to thank and commend the Boilermaker crew that Local 128 (Toronto, Ontario) dispatched to the Timmins Kiddmet site last spring.

“This was the best crew we've ever seen working on our site — safety, skill, and attitude wise.”

Day after day, without exception, this group of Boilermakers produced an excellent quality of work. Their cooperative attitude, friendly manner, and willingness to work left behind a very good impression.

The dedication and professionalism shown by this group under some very difficult situations earned the respect of all who observed.

According to our Falconbridge contact on site, “This was the best crew we’ve ever seen working on our site — safety, skill, and attitude wise.”

We believe that this customer now realizes the benefit in using a union contractor for this sort of work, and they recognize the benefit that Alstom and the Boilermakers brought to their site.

What else can be said other than we appreciate the efforts of all the Boilermakers involved on this contract, it was a pleasure to work with these people and we thank all of you for your excellent work.

Larry Ste. Croix, construction supervisor
Bruce Naim, project manager
Marty Albright, EHS labour relations manager
