NDP Leader Ryan Meili issued the following statement on lock-out at the Federated Co-op Refinery:

“Public safety and the wellbeing of our economy and workers here in Regina are threatened by this increasingly tense situation. Today I have written to Premier Moe asking him to join me in calling on the Co-op Refinery to agree to return to the table with Unifor Local 594 and negotiate a new collective agreement. We need the parties to come together and negotiate a fair deal.”
