The strike by 35 members of Unifor Local 672 continues.

The workers have been off the job for two weeks in a dispute with their employer, S. G. S. Canada.

They’re responsible for on and off-loading ships, trucks and rail cars at Imperial Oil and vessels at Suncor.

Unifor National Rep. Glen Sonier says the replacement of full time employees with part-timers is a key issue. The union says that’s dangerous in a refinery.
