Local 1 Nova Scotia President James Moore is pleased to report the signing of highly respected Atlantic Provinces' mason contractors, Reddick Brothers Masonry Ltd., based in Church Point, NS.
Reddick brothers Joe, Paul, and Gerard established the business in 1975, which at the time, focused on residential contracting. Following Gerard's unfortunate death in 1981 in a work-related accident, the company was incorporated and ventured into Canada's industrial, commercial, and institutional (ICI) scope of work. Since then, they have completed various projects all over the Maritime Provinces. Originally employing bricklayers from southwest Nova Scotia, Reddick Brothers currently runs a crew of approximately 25 bricklayers. Recent Nova Scotia projects include the new Royal Canadian Mounted Police/RCMP station in Dartmouth with an estimated 2.7 million dollars in masonry work, and a new wellness centre in New Glasgow that features two ice surfaces and two swimming pools.
The family-run firm has proudly integrated the next generation into its operations with Joe's daughter Michelle running the office and son Jonathan not only estimating but also assisting in all facets of the business.
According to President Moore, Local 1 began working with the company in July 2011 and signed a trial agreement that was in force from September 2011 through April 2012. Says Moore, "During this period there was a lot of hard work and dedication by both parties to pave the way for Reddick Brothers to sign a voluntary recognition agreement on April 27th. Local 1 looks forward to working with Reddick Brothers and would like to give a warm welcome to our newest Union contractor and bricklayers on mainland Nova Scotia."
