CS Wind Canada is now unionized.
The wind tower company has been notified by the Ontario Labour Relations Board that all employees below the rank of foreman are now members of the Ironworkers Union Local 721.
The company says the process has been fair and equitable and they welcome a good working relationship with the union.
Since its inception in 2011, CS Wind has built over 1000 wind towers.
The company currently has almost 500 employees.
