Sask. Party must immediately move to help the more than 800 workers affected by shut-down
In response to the announced suspension of operations at Cameco McArthur River mining and Key Lake milling operations the Saskatchewan NDP is calling on the Sask. Party government to take immediate action to support the families of the more than 800 workers who have lost their jobs as well and the hundreds more and entire communities that will feel the impact of this shutdown.
“This is terrible news for Northern Saskatchewan. Losing another 800 jobs is devastating to a region that has already lost too many,” said Saskatchewan NDP Leader Nicole Sarauer. “The Sask. Party must stop cutting and starting investing in diversifying our economy, attracting new investment, and nurturing local ideas.”
