Construction firm will re-hire Canadians replaced by workers from Croatia

read full article at Calgary Herald: EDMONTON - The company that laid off 65 Canadian ironworkers from their jobs at the Kearl oilsands project earlier this week and replaced them with temporary foreign workers has reversed course.

Pacer Promec Joint Venture (PPJV) confirmed on Friday it will re-hire the Canadians who had been replaced by workers from Croatia on the project located north of Fort McMurray.

But on Friday evening, Gil McGowan, president of the Alberta Federation of Labour, said the company had not yet contacted the 65 Canadian ironworkers.
“To date, no formal offers to give the workers their job back have been made, either to the union that represents the workers or to the individual workers,” McGowan said.
