Co-Par / JC Power Systems Inc is an anti-union company and in order for
Co-par to not follow Union rules he has had his Son Jason setup JC Power
Systems Incorporated and employees from Co-Par Electric Ltd work for
JC Power Systems and encourages the employees not to report this to
the union that they are working for a non-union company.
When people go to work for JC Power Systems they take a drastic pay
cut vs what is made working for Co-par Electric Ltd.
There are a majority of the people that are union members who works for Co-par
at some time that are now working for JC PowerSystems Inc.
which violation Union rules when they don't tell the Union that they are
JC Power System also attempts to hire on more apprentices and use them as
cheap labour and use them as Journeymen and pay them very low pay and have
them use their own personal vehicle as a work truck.
You won't get paid no $18 an hour either from what I have heard you will get
paid about $17 an hour from this company with no KM or any kind of travel time
or any other kind of reimbursement for using your own vehicle. And you are expected
to go outside of Edmonton as well using your own vehicle.
Over all it isn't even worth working for this company you will just end up getting
screwed in the end with your pay as well and your hours. You will not get 40 hours
a week and he will give you some work but won't give you full hours.
Jason Cook is a smooth talker but don't believe what he says or what he puts
on job listings like the ones above.
Also JC Power Systems as of the end of April does not have any kind of
medical benefits plan. Their safety isn't that good either they will
leave you alone one site yourself even if you are a 1st year or 2nd year
apprentice. Health and Safety is a big concern when you work for
JC Power Systems.
Even though this is against the rules and a 1st and 2nd year apprentice
should be supervised at all times they will leave them alone
on site. If you say anything about it you will find that you will be
threatened to be fired.
This company will also attempt to pass off used parts as new and use
them on various projects. JC Power will take parts out of other locations
and reuse them. Don't trust this company they are crooked as ***!!!!
The quality of the work done by this company is horrible they are over
all a very bad company! Don't use them for any kind of work or work for
