CMAW LOCAL 99

CMAW has strong experience building with quality trades people


Over the past two years, CMAW Local 99 has seen growth in membership and executive structure. We have acquired the primary maintenance contract at CNRL Horizon with the help of Client and their excellent staff. With the addition of this contract we have also progressed our skilled work force into an even more diverse group of hard working individuals. Our maintenance team now provides workforces in mechanical, pipefitting, welding, instrumentation, electrical, scaffolding, and insulation to name a few trades. In addition to our diverse maintenance team, our construction team has had an amazing couple of years. They have helped build projects at CNRL Horizon, Syncrude, Suncor and the Calgary International Airport. Throughout those project we have built hydrogen secondary upgrading plants, bitumen ore processing plants, primary upgrader units, cogeneration units and key airport infrastructure.
The future of our CNRL contracting teams, with the help from Client, have just secured a project to assist the start-up of the new secondary upgrading plants in a special venture group. We have also just successfully completed the largest shutdown in CNRL Horizon history with a combined effort of the maintenance, venture and construction teams. Our maintenance team will be helping CNRL grow as they bring new units online at their Horizon site over the remainder of the year. In May we formed our first executive board by appointment and are organizing to hold elections this fall to vote in our new CMAW local 99 leadership. We are very excited to help guide CMAW into a constructive and prosperous future of world class, technically skilled individuals. We would like to thank our past Vice President for managing the local 99 union prior to the formation of the current executive board. He has since moved into another industry and we wish him all the best. None of these amazing feats would have been possible without the core members of our local stepping up to the challenges.
Special thanks to the Clients management and CNRL staff who have worked with us hand-in-hand throughout these two successful years. We owe our most sincere thanks to all the local 99 members involved in the past two years of projects. Through our strong contracts in the oil industry with CNRL, exceptional relationships with our Clients management and robust membership, the future for local 99 is very optimistic.
