The United Utility Workers’ Association (UUWA) began in 1943 as the Calgary Power Employees
Association. In 1982 it became the TransAlta Employees’ Association and evolved into the UUWA
The UUWA is a collective of employees who work for various employers in the energy sector.
The Association has been given legal authority by the Alberta Labour Relations Board to
represent these employees. Approximately 1700 members, such as Power Line Technicians,
Designers, Administrators, Meter Readers, Technicians and Receptionists, are currently
represented under various Collective Agreements.
The Association has a Board of Directors which consists of Presidents and Directors elected from
each employee group; and, a CEO and Secretary-Treasurer elected from that Board. Your direct
workplace representative is a Unit Coordinator (UC) or Job Discipline Representative (JDR).
Collectively the Board and UC's provide the Association direction.
