Port Burwell firefighters vote to join union

Bayham volunteer firefighters from the Port Burwell station have moved to join Teamsters Local Union 879 after a recent vote.

The Aylmer Express obtained a copy of the application for certification filed with the Ontario Labour Relations Board after Bayham firefighters from both the Port Burwell and Straffordville stations held a certification vote on Dec. 27.

Bayham officials have objected to having only firefighters from the Port Burwell station becoming unionized and will meet with OLRB and Teamster representatives in mid-January.
