A new B-C forestry union is about to start work in B.CA.
The B.CNFA, the B.
Coastal Forests Association of British Columbia, is expected to start negotiating with forestry employers by the end of the year.
The union is made up of a number of B.coastal and B.quicultural employers, which include the B-Coastals B-Company, the Blue Ridge Forestry Corporation, the BC Forest Products Association and the British Columbia Land Company.
The association is looking for union representation and the ability to represent employees in both private and public sectors.
The union is expected be formed by the start of the first quarter of 2019.
It has been nearly three years since the BCABC was created by the Bancroft family, with the union initially established in 2016 and with members formed in the fall of 2016.
The BC Forest Company is one of the companies that have formed a joint-venture with the BC Forestry Association to work together in the BC forestry sector.
The company is currently involved in a dispute with the BAC over a new “land-use” plan, which will see the Banchero Valley cut off from the rest of the province and the entire B.c. peninsula.
The plan, proposed by the BC Government, calls for the Bache area to be separated from the BC Coastline and is expected, in part, to benefit private timber companies such as B.comber and Bancros.
