Your Workplace Benefits

Local 1059 members enjoy the benefits of unionization including health and pension coverage, skills and safety training, and job security. We also place members in rewarding careers with tremendous opportunities – from profitable and interesting careers as skilled workers to the ability to take a career path that leads to leadership positions, both within companies and on the job site.

  • Health Coverage
    Local 1059 takes pride in taking care of its members and their dependents with a comprehensive benefits package that includes prescriptions, dental, paramedical, optical, mental health and addictions counselling, and even medical cannabis coverage. In addition, Local 1059 members have access to the MembersHealth 24/7 telemedicine service to connect with a doctor in minutes.
  • Skills & Safety Training
    The safety of our members is of paramount importance, and that’s why Local 1059 offers an extensive variety of safety training and certification courses on-site at our brand new state-of-the-art Training Centre in London, Ontario. Visit the Upcoming Courses section of the site for more information.
  • Pension Coverage
    Local 1059 is dedicated to helping its members build a stronger future through the Labourers’ Pension Fund of Central and Eastern Canada, a multi-employer pension fund where every company contributes to the same plan.
  • Job Security
    In these uncertain economic times, more and more people are citing job security as a primary driver in the career they choose to pursue. The great news is, construction is a thriving industry and skilled tradespeople are in higher demand than ever before. Local 1059 works hard to ensure our members remain employed, and we refer out of work members to our signatory employers.
