Lax Kw'alaams longshore applications now available through Lax Kw'alaams Business Development Office

Work at Fairview Container Terminal is just one area
of jurisdiction for ILWU members on the North Coast

The next hiring call for membership in the ILWU and possible access to port related jobs in the region appears to be in motion as 2018 gets underway.

With one notice of the opportunities coming from the Lax Kw'alaams Band Council, which is advising its members that applications for a limited number of opportunities to apply for a position with the local longshore office are now available through the Lax Kw'alaams Business Development Office in Prince Rupert.

Word of the opportunities came through the Band Council Facebook page and from the background notes related to the potential job opportunities, the Lax Kw'alaams Band advises that there are a limited number of applications for casual employment available, and they come with no guarantee of employment.

As well, in addition to a starting period where there may only be one or two days of work, if that, per week, those selected must live in Prince Rupert and will start their time with ILWU by working on the log ships, a position which is physically demanding.

Those with an interest in putting in an application can or require more information about the process can bring their resume to the Lax Kw'alaams Business Development Office  in Prince Rupert at 100 1st Avenue East.

You can also email your  resume to employment@laxbdl.com

The deadline for Lax Kw'alaams members to pick up their application and apply is January 22nd at 5 PM.

The notice to Band members can be reviewed below:
