Imperial Metals Corp. has filed a case in the Supreme Court of British Columbia against a group of striking employees who the company claims are blocking access to the Mount Polley mine. The group, which has been off work since May 23, is keeping contractors from entering to perform essential maintenance, Imperial Metals says. The company is asking for an injunction to remove the blockade, along with an order authorizing police to arrest those who are in breach of the order.
The allegations are contained in a notice of claim that Imperial Metals filed at the Vancouver courthouse on Monday, July 9. The defendants include the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union as well as its members. Also named are any persons physically impeding access to the Mount Polley mine.
The lawsuit centres around a labour dispute that has been brewing since Dec. 31, 2017, when the contract for several employees at Mount Polley expired. Attempts at renewing the contract failed, and mine employees stopped work on May 23, 2018. The employees set up a picket several kilometres from the mine.
The remainder is available to Stockwatch subscribers.
