Two engineers at BFI Constructors in the Regina, Sask., area will not be paid for the daily commute, an arbitrator has decided.

The International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) filed a grievance against BFI, saying the construction company failed to pay a daily transportation expense to operating engineers who work in Regina and are local residents, as defined by the collective agreement, which entitled them to pay.
