    Its hard attracting good or even average techs these days I see lots of notices at the suppliers

    Have you sent notices to the ref suppliers in alta BC etc ?

    good luck

    there are ads up at the wholesaler that have been up for months and months-with good and reputable companies.skilled labour is in a severe shortage here and i think the OP will have a tough time finding anybody at that wage,considering what the union scale is at.2nd years make 26 bucks an hour.

    I came out of the union 12 years in local 488. You will have to pay me a lot more to work union because of all BS. Some people just like going to work without BS. Plus a company Truck and trips. Last year sent every employee somewhere. When I was in the union I had ride yellow school bus and they never sent me anywhere.

    we all have opinions on union or non but the simple fact here is non-union shops(most of them)are on par or paying more than union shops.I realize you do a lot of residential but you are a little low IMHO

    There are not to many companies paying $32.00 to $35.00 per Hour and not a lot of union competition. Anyways I got job listed across Canada and on monsters.CA. I am sure someone will fill job. If not I guess I will have to put in overtime.

    I hired 2 commercial guys with Alberta tickets and left them alone on a job, thought they new better since they were in trade for 15 + years doing commercial work for reputable companies, had job inspected by edmonton inspectors and they said exactly you better get journeyman on job or we will revoke your city license, I laught my ass off because they were friends of city inspector and they don't bother me now. My only journeyman tin basher does service only. Refuses to do residential because inspectors r to anal.
