Contracting Out

The Contracting Out Coordinator (COC) became a full time role as of 2005 for the Union. The contracting out coordinator is responsible for chairing the monthly contracting out meetings between the Company and Union area representatives. This is achieved along with company members of Contract Administration and Purchasing attending.

The purpose of this role is to reduce and eliminate the amount of contracting out work within the mines and surface plants. This is a challenging role due to the vast amount of growth and expansion happening at Vale Inco over the past few years, and the amount of contractors seems to be growing all the time. Contracting out has a globally recognized effect on job security, and USW 6166 recognized a need to make this a full time role for our members protection.

My family moved to Thompson to pursue educational opportunities, as well as explore prospects for employment in the mining industry. We have met and made many lifelong friends who have become our extended family. Our family has grown to include grandchildren and the community of Thompson and the north is home. I proudly declare and embrace Canada as my home. My family enjoys exploring this amazing country on long road trips, camping and boating at Paint Lake and spending time with family and friends.
