Layoffs at Rocanville Nutrien Mine To Go Ahead, Despite End to CN Rail Strike

Despite the end of the strike at C.N, Nutrien is still going ahead with a 2 week layoff affecting some 550 workers on December 2nd.
The shut down is at the Rocanville mine, and a company spokesman says the end of the dispute at C.N came too late to avert it.
The strike has coincided with a period of weakness for the potash industry, which has been buffeted by poor weather in the American Midwest, China’s suspension of potash shipments, and other drags on global fertilizer demand.
