Layoff notices issued to nearly 600 Evraz employees: union

According to the union representing workers at Regina’s Evraz Steel facility, nearly 600 layoff notices have been handed out to employees in the plant’s Tubular Division.

A layoff notice posted to the United Steelworkers Local 5890 website Tuesday says the employees will be “laid off indefinitely effective end of shift Dec. 17, 2020.”

The union said in an earlier post Evraz had issued a “Displacement Memo” last month for the Tubular Division, citing economic conditions as the reason for the workforce reduction.

CTV News has reached out to Evraz for confirmation.
