Teamsters Local 213 Training Centre

The goal of creating a Teamsters Local 213 comprehensive training school is one big step closer to reality after the recent purchase of a three-acre lot and building in Chilliwack, jointly with the LiUNA Construction and Specialized Workers Local 1611. The 7,800 square-foot (724.6 meter squared) building itself is a former warehouse. The local plans to add a 4,000 square- foot (371.6 meters squared) mezzanine that will be host to several classrooms and driving simulator machines for practice.

The rest of the property includes an outside parking and storage area—partially paved and partially gravel—for practical training. The paved portion is intended for commercial drivers’ license training, and the gravel section will be used for training for off-road vehicles, like rock trucks and front-end loaders. By the time it is fully operational, it is expected to be the largest Teamster training school in Western Canada. Read the whole article here.
