Northern Ontario Business reported that Polish-owned mining company KGHM has announced it is cutting 22 jobs from its Morrison Mine operation. Myles Sullivan, area coordinator for Northeastern Ontario for Steelworkers Local 2020, who represents the affected workers, said the layoffs were decided on in mid-December by KGHM due to low mineral prices. While job cuts are always difficult, he said the union put a few benefits in place for the affected workers.

He said “We've been working with the company and the workers to get them severance packages and we managed to save a few of the layoffs with early retirement packages to save some of the junior folks. It was hard having to manage layoffs just before Christmas, but we are going to help them any way we can.”

There is no word if these layoffs are temporary or permanent.

It is located about 45 kilometres northwest of Sudbury, on the northeast outskirts of the outlying community of Levack.
