VANCOUVER: Avcorp Industries, Inc. (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that International Association of
Machinists and Aerospace Workers Local Lodge 11 have ratified a new 6 year collective agreement contract with the
Company today, by a two‐thirds majority.
This six year agreement provides improvements to base wage rates each year and improvements to benefits, as well
as incentives for early and normal retirees during the first two years of the contract.
“This is an important accomplishment for all of us here at Avcorp,” said Mark van Rooij, CEO of Avcorp, ”because it
strikes a balance between the best interests of our highly skilled workforce and the economic realities of an extremely
competitive global aerostructures marketplace. The most progressive and responsible suppliers in our industry are all
looking for long term agreements with their work forces because it provides the stability of supply that customers are
looking for. This agreement serves the interests of all of our stakeholders, and puts Avcorp front and centre in the
minds of customers when they are looking to place new work.”
