New Boilermakers App

A new smartphone app that works on Apple, Android and Windows 10 devices is helping Canadian Boilermakers make it easier to find work and check in at job sites. The bilingual app, Boilermaker Job Ready, was launched in May and has just been updated to let members get notifications of new job calls, view and apply for open job calls and add themselves to the Travel Card pool. Any Boilermaker who has a Members Only account on can also log in to update information for dispatchers, present their Core Safety Training information for jobsite check-in and view announcements, in addition to the job-call features. The app is available free on Android, Apple and Microsoft app stores. For more information, please visit

Our industry needs your help. We are appealing to you to speak out in supporting our industry and your participation is vital. Bill e-216 isn’t about just TransCanada, it’s our entire industry and Canadians that are facing a direct threat from the opposition. I know we collectively agree on this but without a significant outcry from the general public we are at risk of significantly reducing our future opportunities building any pipelines. Please get this urgent message out. Let’s all speak out for what we believe is one of the safest, environmentally friendly and economically beneficial modes of transportation.
