IAMAW facing strike negotiations in Canada
Industrial action has been ratified by the union.
The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers' (IAMAW) Canadian division is set to take industrial action against Finning.
Although the body has permission to take to the picket line, Finning is hoping to use union bargaining to avert any protests.
If labour action is pursued by the IAMAW, then the world's largest Caterpillar equipment dealer has said sales will continue as normal, but there will be a reduction in the shop and field services offered.
"Finning is committed to the collective bargaining process and to concluding a fair and balanced contract that is equitable for its employees and for Finning," it noted.
As a result of the decision to purse disruption, strike negotiations will be taking place as effective from today (June 20th) members of the union can down tools.
It comes after IAMAW Local Lodge 2734 signed a two-year collective agreement with Airport Terminal Services in Calgary, Alberta that will see wages increase.
