CRC pleased with court decision on interim order
January 22, 2020
The Co-op Refinery Complex (CRC) is pleased with the court’s decision finding Unifor in contempt of the interim injunction court order.
This decision is reassuring as it demonstrates that our legal system works and that the rule of law will be upheld when individuals or organizations choose to subvert it. Unifor continues to engage in illegal activity today, but we hope that the fine and penalty levied against Unifor by the court today, together with the court's statement of "the need to follow court orders, particularly those intended to bring some level of stability to a tense labour dispute," will serve to deter future illegal activity going forward.
In light of this ruling, we ask that Unifor comply with the injunction order currently in place and remove the blockade.
