ABBOTSFORD, BC – Following the filing of a certification, IATSE Local 118 has reached a first collective agreement with Spectra Venue Management for work performed at the Abbotsford Sports and Entertainment Centre. The certification was filed in the fall of last year and the agreement was signed on March 3.
