Contractor Reps Unite, Urging Waterloo Council to Examine Tendering Practices

There’s a fire burning in the Region of Waterloo as the issue of construction labour monopolies continues to spread into other sectors of the industry, says Karen Renkema, senior manager of public affairs with the Progressive Contractors Association of Canada (PCA).

She was part of a joint delegation made up of the PCA, the Ontario Sewer and Watermain Construction Association (OSWCA) and the Conestoga Heavy Construction Association (CHCA), who recently urged the Region of Waterloo Council to ensure construction projects are fairly and openly tendered to all qualified contractors.
