The Thompson Local News


Despite the temporarily rescinding 34 layoff notices, United Steelworkers Local 6166 President Warren Luky is not happy with Vale.

 

A spokesperson for Vale says that 34 workers, who were originally told they’d be out of work in September, have had their notices rescinded and will now be a part of the next round of layoffs at the end of 2018.

 

Luky says that there is frustration with how Vale is handling their communication with employees, adding that some union members were told they would be out of work and have made plans to or already had moved. He said that some have now received a letter saying that they have to come back to work or lose out on their severance package.

 

127 Vale employees were laid off July 31st when the smelter and refinery officially closed.
