August 5, 2021 - On behalf of the communities of the Haisla Nation, the District of Kitimat and City of Terrace, we recognize the challenges associated with the UNIFOR 2301 strike and reduced Rio Tinto B.C. Works operations and urge both parties to meet and work together to come to an amicable agreement that benefits all parties and the larger community.

Rio Tinto B.C. Works is a significant local employer and contributor to the local, regional, and provincial economy. UNIFOR 2301 represents members of our communities that are essential to the operations of the Kitimat aluminum smelter. We wish both parties perseverance as they seek an amicable and mutually beneficial agreement that will support stability and prosperity in Kitimat, Terrace, and Northwest B.C.
