Unifor 594 initiated a labour dispute at the Co-op Refinery Complex in Regina. Our industry is changing and we need to transition to a low-carbon economy. That means ensuring our operations are safe, efficient and sustainable for generations.
REAL BARGAINING IS NEEDED

Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe appointed Vince Ready as the special mediator for bargaining on the Co-op Refinery Complex (CRC) collective agreement with Unifor 594 on Feb. 12.

Since the Premier’s first offer of a special mediator, we have welcomed this appointment and the opportunity to have productive bargaining provided all illegal picketing activity ceased at any location. We look forward to meaningful discussions with Mr. Ready that lead to a long-term, sustainable agreement that works for both parties.

Mediation is scheduled to begin Feb. 18.

 

Safety is our priority.

  • We rank in the top quartile in process safety.
  • A recent inspection by the Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety on Jan. 14 reported no health or safety concerns.
  • We’re investing in safety and reliability through our annual Turnaround maintenance period in April.

 

We’re fuelling Western Canada

  • We continue to ensure you have the fuel you need, however Unifor’s illegal tactics have led to periodic fuel outages.
  • There is no shortage of fuel – the CRC is operating at 90% capacity – Unifor is preventing its distribution.

 

We share our profits.

  • FCL returns most of its profits to local co-ops, including $649 million in 2019.
  • Unifor refers to our $2.5 billion in profits in recent years, but never talks about the $2 billion that goes back to local co-ops.
