June 10, 2008, Montreal -On June 5, 2008 the IAMAW certified 17 workers employed by
Hélicraft 2000 Inc. at St. Hubert airport on the south shore of
Montréal.

"We
have been pushing hard to organize workers from the helicopter industry
in Quebec,” said IAMAW District 140 Organizer Robert Savoie. " The 17 workers, who perform
maintenance on helicopters, consist of certified mechanics, mechanics
helpers and stores keepers; will become the newest members of IAMAW
Local Lodge 1751.

“The
IAMAW is the aerospace union in Canada and we believe the decision by
these employees to join us will have a spill-over effect on other
workers in this industry,” added Savoie.

IAMAW,
among the largest industrial trade unions in North America, represents
more than 700,000 active and retired members, and administers more than
5,000 contracts in transportation, woodworking, aerospace,
manufacturing and defense related industries.
