Labour Trade Obligations

In September 2005, the Union of Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners Union Local 18 obtained bargaining rights with the City of Hamilton, whereby the City is now bound by the terms and conditions of the Agreement for the ICI sector. Work involving any of the five trades of Carpentry, Acoustic and Drywall, Resilient Flooring, Caulking, and Pile Driving, must be carried out by a contractor signatory to the Union.

To find out if a Request for Tenders, Request for Proposals or other solicitation documents issued by the City’s Procurement Section requires the use of Union contractors, please refer to the document’s Special Provisions or Supplementary Instructions section for details.
