Business Manager's Update
Currently there is a lot of talk about the status of the Fort Hills Project. The Building Trades have been meeting with the CLR and several other contractors to come up with a plan to propose to Petrol-Canada. Petrol-Canada Upstream is a $20+ Billion open site mine 70km north of Fort McMurray. The initial phase will be 140,000 barrels per day and they plan to expand to 280,000 barrels per day by 2015.
We had meetings in November and there are meeting dates set up for December and January. We will update the membership at our January meeting.
