"A strike of Technicians and Technologists at Atomic Energy of Canada
Limited Whiteshell Laboratories set to commence today has been narrowly
averted. Last minute talks between the union and Company last week
successfully resolved the matters in dispute. “Particularly in this
environment, where the ownership of the facility is imminently expected
to change hands, this was critically important. Having remained
non-unionized for decades, Technicians and Technologists join their AECL
colleagues with a solid Collective Agreement. I’m proud that our union
could assist at their time of greatest need”, said Gary Corbett,
President, The Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada."
