2019 Provincial Election Survey

Memo to Members:

In April, Trades NL sent letters to the four provincial political party leaders asking them to complete a survey regarding issues affecting our membership.

As voters, it is important for our members and the general public to know where the party leaders and their parties position themselves on:

  • Ensuring the highest number of jobs for Newfoundlanders and Labradorians from Resource Development Projects (mining, oil, gas & hyrdo);
  • The development of the Bull Arm Fabrication Facility, positioning it to avail of further work opportunities;
  • Community Benefit Agreements on public and resource development projects where there are hiring provisions to ensure qualified Newfoundlanders and Labradorians receive first work opportunities, and hiring of apprentices and under-represented workers; and
  • Tax credit and training for Newfoundland & Labrador skilled trade workers.

Below is a link to the 2019 Provincial Election letter, survey and responses from the four political party leaders.

We encourage you to take some time to review the responses, to see where they stand on issues important to skilled trade workers in Newfoundland and Labrador.

On May 16th, we encourage everyone to exercise your democratic right to vote!
