OAKVILLE, Ont. — A new council for recruiters in the transportation industry is in the process of is being formed.
After a number of roundtable meetings over the last few months, a steering committee has been formed, and a unanimous decision was made on June 2 to move forward with creating the council, to be called the Canadian Transportation Recruiters Council.
The steering committee consists of Caroline Blais of Kriska, Judy McKeegan of Sarnia Paving and Stone, Donna Haviland of Yanke Group of Companies, Les Rozander of Trimac, Brian Lemoine of Pro Trans, Mike Flattery of Genesis Express and Logistics, and Kevin Jennings of Canamex
“My vision when starting these meetings was to become a united group of recruiters, to share information, set standards for hiring and to help improve the industry through recruiting and retention initiatives and to also be a voice within industry at various functions and educational seminars,” said founder and chair of the group, Jayne Gunn of Caravan Logistics. “I see part of our mission as being able to help drivers find suitable carriers to work for within our group, positively impact industry capacity by promoting driver development and apprenticeship programs and foster new relationships amongst ourselves therefore helping to improve the integrity of trucking.”
The first general meeting will be held on Sept. 2. For information on how to join the council, contact Les Rozander (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Caroline Blais (email@example.com).
