Canada's Co-Op Refinery issues lockout notice after union calls for strike

(Reuters) - The Co-op Refinery in Regina, Saskatchewan, on Tuesday issued a 48-hour lockout notice in response to a strike notice from a workers union over wages and benefits.

“The refinery believes it has put a fair deal on the table, however the company is still open to negotiations and will be reaching out to the Unifor 594 Executive in an attempt to prevent a strike,” the refinery said in a statement on its website.

The Co-op Refinery Complex (CRC) is a wholly-owned subsidiary and a strategic business unit of Federated Co-operatives Limited (FCL).
