Cement District Lodge D11

Cement District Lodge D11 located in western Canada was created in the mid-1970's as a subordinate district lodge in the Cement, Lime, Gypsum, and Allied Workers Union (CLGAW). After the CLGAW merged with the Boilermakers in 1983, the number of the lodge was changed to D11. The merger has benefited both District Lodge D11 and nearby Boilermaker construction lodges. Since the merger, we have supplied thousands of manhours of work for our construction lodges. Its affiliated Local Lodges are D274, D277, D331, D345, D359, D385, D400, D479, D486, D503, D513, and D575.
