Actually, Local 444 has been talking with the company for a very long time trying to find resolves to the various situations at the facility. The goal of the union is never to cause undue hardship on a company it represents; the leadership has been working with the people of Sterling Fuels trying to resolve the issues. The company would constantly put forth a deadline and then miss it and in the interest of the membership talks would continue. There are also very strict guidelines on filing a formal complaint under the different ministries affected and those timelines needed to be honoured.
Why has it taken so long for the union to step in and do something?
