Ottawa Local Agreement

As presented in our newsletter, ECA Ottawa and IBEW Local 586 could not  reach an agreement for the 2022- 2024 term. As a result, the sunset clause was triggered, dismissing the conditions as agree to in the previous verion. The following are changes to the local agreement applicable as of May 1, 2022. 


  1. Journeyperson to apprentice ratios will conform to the Provincial legislation: Now 1:1
  2. Foreman and General Foreman will revert to 12% (from 15%) and 20% (from 25%) respectively.
  3. Parking reverts to $15.00 per day (down from $18.00).
  4. There is no more bereavement leave.
  5. Night shift reverts to 20% from 25%.
  6. Breaks now as outlined in the principal agreement.
  7. All stabilized jobs return to the 50/50 rule. 50% of the workforce will come from the IBEW.
  8. Minor Construction Projects Agreement is no longer in effect.
