The Board of Governors of the Conference of Commercial and Independent Home Inspectors is pleased to announce that there have been significant developments in the on-going negotiations with the Teamsters Union. These developments will have far reaching effects on our industry and our futures in it.
We can today release the following ;
[FONT=Times New Roman]- The Teamsters have decided, with the full support of the Board of Governors, to expand the union, under separate locals, to the rest of the Canadian Provinces . This significant expansion increases the opportunity for every Home Inspector to become a member of the Conference and enjoy the benefits of that membership. Becoming a trans-Canadian Conference will allow your Conference to become involved in both national and regional issues and build the organization from the grass roots up.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman]- The Teamsters have agreed to waive the initial registration fee for new members for the period of Grandfathering for existing inspectors. This represents a significant savings for new members.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman]- Negotiations with insurance providers will be undertaken to provide members with lower cost Errors and Omissions and business Liability insurance. Further negotiations with other suppliers will be undertaken as manpower becomes available.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman]- The Board of Governors continues to work on the structure of the Conference so that when memberships are accepted, members will be able to take a direct hand in the building of their Conference.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman]- Further meetings are scheduled in Montreal over the next two weeks during which, it is hoped, that most of the rest of the key issues will be settled.[/FONT]
The Board of Governors appreciates the impatience of some Home Inspectors to have all their questions answered. Rest assured that as soon as the Board is able to answer everybody’s questions we will do so. However, the Board of Governors will not engage in speculation to the detriment of the Industry.
Your patience is appreciated.
