Striking nuclear engineers target Darlington

Striking nuclear engineers target Darlington

MISSISSAUGA, ONT. — The Society of Professional Engineers and Associates (SPEA) announced May 29 that it has initiated strike action at the Darlington nuclear site east of Toronto.

SPEA members voted overwhelmingly in support of strike action. They have been without a contract since 2021.

The union represents engineers, scientists, and technical and administrative staff who work for Candu Energy Inc., the nuclear division of SNC-Lavalin.

“For nearly six months we have been at the bargaining table in good faith trying to get a fair and reasonable contract with Candu Energy,” said Reza Ziaei, SPEA vice-president of SPEA. “Lack of progress at the table and SNC-Lavalin’s anti-union tactics have left us with no choice but to initiate strike action.”
