Cornwall ON – There’s a glimmer of hope for workers at The Shell Oil Refinery in Montreal as negotiations still continue in spite of the Company announcement to shut down the facility.
On Monday, the Quebec Federation of Labour, which represents unionized workers at the refinery, called on consumers to boycott Shell for 24 hours on Friday to protest the planned closure.
The federation, the province’s biggest union, said all but 30 of the 500 workers at the plant will lose their jobs if the refinery is converted into a storage centre.
The union said the closure would also indirectly affect 3,500 jobs in industries dependent on the refinery.
What do you think Canada? Can the plant and jobs be saved as this is huge for Montreal and for all of us served by the refinery.
