Good deal for workers

Section: 
Letter

The news that Bruce Power has reached a deal with the government on the refurbishment of six units is welcomed by the Grey-Bruce Labour Council.

The Grey-Bruce Labour Council has been the voice of labour in our region for over 50 years and the Labour Council has been a positive supporter of Bruce Power and its predecessors, OPG and Ontario Hydro, for many years.

The refurbishment of the six units at Bruce Power will ensure reliable and safe energy for decades to come while significantly mitigating the emissions of climate changing greenhouse gases. The refurbishment will ensure reliable and safe energy in our communities with good jobs and significant economic spin off work throughout the provincial economy.

This deal is a good for workers in all facets of the economy, union members in many (if not all) workplaces represented at Labour Council, and it ensures safe and emissions free electricity that ensures reliable electricity for Ontario.

Past Labour Council president Dave Trumble notes that the Labour Council looks forward to continuing our long-standing work with the Canadian Nuclear Workers’ Council to do everything possible to bring about success of the refurbishment.

Hazel Pratt-Paige,President,

Grey-Bruce Labour Council
