    Steelworkers to represent log haulers in West Kootenays - Canada NewsWire
    The United Steelworkers has withdrawn an application to the BC Labour Relations Board to certify log haulers in the province's West Kootenays region. In exchange for the withdrawal, stump-to- dump logging contractors employed by Pope and Talbot Inc. have agreed to recognize the union as the negotiator for members of the Arrow Lakes Trucking Association.

    Steelworkers' Local 1-405, based in Cranbrook, will represent the truckers, who haul to a Pope and Talbot log dump in the Arrow Lakes. The association represents 24 trucking companies, operating more than 30 trucks.
