NOTICE TO WORKERS ON SYNCRUDE PROJECTS: Message from Syncrude:

Thank you for your patience as oil sand operator’s deal with immediate emergency response needs related to the Fort McMurray forest fire. The priority over the last couple of days has been to evacuate woman, children and those with medical needs, and the work is nearly complete. Also hard work was done to ensure immediate needs for food & other necessaries were met during this emergency. There are currently about 25,000 people in camps North Fort McMurray. Continuous hard work has been in place to evacuate all non-essential personnel as quickly as possible. This includes the many workers, like you who, up until the fire, were busily contributing to Syncrudes Project Wolverine turnaround event. Please be assured that you are safe in the camp where you are currently located. However, we know you are anxious to go home and it’s been a coordinating effort to evacuate all the residents of their-party camps as soon as possible. Air evacuations from various airstrips to Edmonton & Calgary will be taken place over the next 24 to 48 hours, and perhaps a bit longer. More information will be provided as it becomes available, but please be prepared to depart camp on short notice. Buses will be provided to take you to the airstrip where you will depart.

 

Message from Edmonton Exchanger:

All Edmonton Exchanger employees that were working at Syncrude site have been laid off and will be paid travel allowance. They will work closely with the unions in an effort to bring everybody back, once work resumes. Thank you for your patience.
