New Pacific Western Joint Industry Council Elects Officers

International John Costa, International Secretary Treasurer Ken Kirk, and International Executive Vice President Yvette Trujillo convened the recently formed Pacific Western Joint Industry Council (JIC) to adopt bylaws, elect officers, and discuss critical issues concerning this emerging transit company in Canada. Also joining the meeting were International Vice Presidents Manny Sforza, John Callahan, and Ken Wilson.


Joining Forces

Costa and our General Executive Board established the Pacific Western JIC to address the challenges that we’re going to face moving forward as we’ve seen PW Transportation become a bigger company and take over more of our properties across Canada.

The Council is represented by Local 569-Edmonton, AB, Local 583-Calgary, AB, Local 1572-Mississauga, ON, Local 1624-Peterborough, ON, and Local 1747-Port Alberni, BC, which all have properties that are operated by PW Transit.


Elected Officers

Congratulations to the elected officers who were sworn in by International President Costa: Chair Steve Bradshaw, Local 569, Financial Secretary-Treasurer, Mike Mahar Local 583, and Executive Board Member Jack Jackson, Local 1572.

We look forward to working with the members of this JIC in order to better organize the membership, provide for their collective defense, and to advance the interests of transit workers in the Pacific Northwest.
