Vote on Final Offer
- We're disappointed that the membership has chosen to reject our best and final offer.
- We believed our best and final offer was fair for both parties and provides wage increases, pension options and a choice of Savings Plan or Performance Bonus.
- Our offer more closely aligns with the energy sector and provides our Co-op system with the certainty that we need to make long-term investments in the Refinery.
Fueling Western Canada
- Our highly skilled management team will continue to operate the facility, as they have they have for nearly six months.
- We are focused on the safe operation of the Refinery and to ensuring our team remains safe and healthy in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
- We are committed to ensuring our critical infrastructure is available to support the province and protect our people during this challenging time.
- Our Refinery has been forced to make changes in order to transition to a low-carbon economy. Recent developments (COVID-19) have only accelerated these challenges.
- On April 16, 2020, we announced that we reduced our production to 90,000 barrels per day (BPD). The Refinery has been running safely and efficiently at approximately 110,000 to 120,000 BPD over the last three months.
- The decision to reduce our daily capacity is in response to overall market conditions and reduced demand for gasoline as a result of self-isolation measures.
Safety is our Priority
- Regardless of our production levels, our focus is, and will continue to be, on the safe operation of the Refinery.
- Nothing is more important than health and well-being of our people and our local community. We have had a pandemic plan in place for many weeks now – a plan that has proven to be quite effective.
- On April 1, 2020, representatives from both the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) and Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) were on site to assess our pandemic plan and our facilities, including the work camp located on site. Officials were satisfied with the steps we have taken. We are confident that our plan will continue to protect our workers and our community.
Today, the CRC announced it has reduced production in response to market conditions and reduced demand for gasoline.
