Pieridae Energy (Canada) Ltd has announced that it has reached a tentative Project Labour Agreement with Nova Scotia trades and construction unions for the proposed Goldboro LNG Project.
The agreement was signed by the Nova Scotia Construction Labour Relations Association, as the bargaining agent of Pieridae, and by each of the unions that will be providing skilled tradespersons during the construction of the Goldboro LNG Project. The Project Labour Agreement will be presented to the membership of each union for ratification.
The Project Labour Agreement, together with the various existing collective agreements, outline the terms of employment of tradespersons who will be engaged during the construction of the Goldboro LNG Project and include training and employment opportunities for qualified First Nations members, women and local residents. During peak construction, the project is expected to run two 10 hour shifts each day.
Pieridae President and Chief Executive Officer, Alfred Sorensen, said: "Having the best tradespersons available to this important project is a key achievement in our quest to satisfy the milestones leading to a final investment decision […] We are excited about this agreement because it demonstrates all parties' shared commitment to the fair treatment of labour and to the timely development of this critical project for the Province of Nova Scotia and Canada."
Goldboro LNG will be located in the Goldboro Industrial Park in the Municipality of the District of Guysborough, Nova Scotia, Canada.
