Montréal, QC – IAM Canadian General Vice President Stan Pickthall and IAM Québec Coordinator David Chartrand will unveil the IAM’s Aerospace report in Montreal on Monday February 4th. This major report emphasizes the urgency of addressing challenges in the Canadian Aerospace sector.
“This industry employs 208,000 Canadians in well-paid stable middle class and family supporting jobs,” said Pickthall. “However up to one third of those workers are eligible to retire by 2025 and there’s no comprehensive training plan in place for new hires. Funding and support for this industry that generates $28 billion in revenues for this country, is needed from all levels of government.”
