Province must act to resolve Co-op lock-out: NDP

NDP Leader Ryan Meili called on the province to bring the parties together through binding arbitration to resolve the lock-out at the Co-op Refinery in Regina.

“The lack of leadership from the provincial government on this lock-out cannot continue,” said Meili. “The government needs to come out of hiding and show leadership to help resolve this lock-out with binding arbitration. The people of the province need to hear from the Labour Minister today, to assure them that he will not allow this situation to go on indefinitely.

“Workers at the refinery need to be able to negotiate a fair deal with their employer, and the people of Saskatchewan need to know that they have a government that will listen and take leadership when things get tough. Today is that day, and I sincerely hope that we will see this government commit to binding arbitration to resolve this lock-out.”
