Visite au Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean: Blanchet rencontre les leaders syndicaux

The leader of the Bloc québécois, Yves-François Blanchet, has taken advantage of his second day in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean, Thursday, to meet with the various union representatives.

These came out in saying you had an attentive ear to their concerns.

The Union des producteurs agricoles (UPA) and the Union of dairy producers have asked for help to the leader of the Bloc to force Ottawa to pay the compensation to their members arising from the impacts of new international agreements, such as that between Canada, the United States and Mexico.

During the meeting with the producers of timber, it has rather been a question of the timber and the fruit of the bud of the spruce tree.

Yves-François Blanchet has also discussed with the trade union leaders of the aluminum in the region.

The unions hope to reactivate the mobilization to demand that Rio Tinto respects its commitments in terms of investment in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean.

They have asked the chief bloquiste to see if the federal government could not add to the pressure on the multinational company.

On Friday, Yves-François Blanchet will spend one last day in the region.
