Candu workers picket in Brampton
A group of engineers set up pickets around Brampton this week to protest against their company’s proposal to cut employee wages and benefits.
About 800 nuclear scientists, engineers and technologists at Mississauga-based Candu Energy Inc. went on strike earlier this month after negotiators failed to reach a contract before the strike deadline.
Candu is owned by Montreal-based engineering giant SNC-Lavalin, and its employees design, build and service nuclear reactors that supply nearly half of Ontario’s electricity and 16 per cent of Canada’s overall electricity requirements.
