Union gives ArcelorMittal strike notice for Quebec mine
The two sides have since agreed to resume negotiations in Montreal, but some 2,000 workers will walk off the job at noon Monday if outstanding issues are not resolved, said Dominic Lemieux, assistant to the union's Quebec director.
The union has concerns with wages, pensions, sub-contracting and lower pay for workers at the company's nearby smaller mine, Lemieux said.
A strike would affect the large open pit Mont-Wright mine, a railroad link to port, a processing plant in Port Cartier and the smaller Fire Lake mine. ■
