Canadian National Steel Car announced that they will be suspending all operations this week, affecting hundreds of workers in Hamilton. It announced that they will begin a systematic, orderly, suspension of operations with the cessation of fabrication and construction at the end of shifts on Friday, April 3, 2020 and all finishing and shipping operations will cease on or before April 17, 2020.”

The closure and layoffs come as the government calls for all Personal Protective Equipment to be handed over to first responders and health-care workers who are battling COVID-19. It said “Because of these Governmental directives, we are unable to provide the PPE necessary for the safety of our employees working in our manufacturing operations.”

National Steel Car says things will get up and running again when they’re able to secure enough PPE to ensure the safety of their employees.

National Steel Car is the largest manufacturer of rolling stock in Canada, based in Hamilton, Ontario. The company was founded in 1912, and has been a top 3 rolling stock manufacturer in Canada. The company employs approximately 2,000 people
