Affinity Programs
MCA Alberta has a number of Alberta centric corporate affinity
programs, four of which go beyond company benefits to include discounts also accessible by employees. These include Alberta Treasury
Branches, Mynmax mobility, GoodLife Fitness and Aon's Home and
Auto. Encouraging employees to take advantage of these programs
provides multiple benefits and helps facilitate employee commitment
and retention.
Another new program MCA Alberta has developed is an electronic
Jobsite Journal. For more information and to check out all MCA AB
discount programs go to http://mca-ab.com/discount-programs/.

Education Programming
In late 2016, MCA Alberta hired a full time Education Coordinator
and, as our education programming matures, we are starting to see
the benefits of being able to offer education programs that members
are seeking in a timely and cost-effective fashion. We have also been
able to diversify our offerings to target specific segments within the
industry and specific departments with each segment. Check out our
full range of programs and events at http://mca-ab.com/events/.

Other Lobby Issues
With the Alberta Government working through an aggressive agenda
to modernize all legislation that impacts workers and worker rights,
there has been no shortage of issues on which to focus MCA Alberta's
attention. The elimination of an effective hour bank system, previously
used and appreciated by most employers and employees alike, through
the adoption of mandatory time and half overtime for anything over
8 hours per day and 44 hours per week, is one that has capture our
collective attention. Many specific industries are currently exempt from
these constraints for a variety of reasons. MCA Alberta is seeking to
gain flexibility within the new regulations that will allow mechanical
contractors and their employees to more effectively and efficiently
complete work within the sometimes limited opportunities that exist.

Western Region Joint Conference, May 30 -
June 2, 2019, Banff Springs Hotel, Banff, AB
The western region MCAs are joining together to present a oncein-a-decade opportunity to mix and mingle with MCA contractors,
suppliers, wholesalers and manufacturers from across the Canadian

As our education programming matures,
we are starting to see the benefits of
being able to offer education programs
that members are seeking in a timely and
cost-effective fashion.
