Request to the Premier - Income Support

The Office of the Premier

Confederation Building, East Block
P.O. Box 8700
St. John's, NL
A1B 4J6

June 6th, 2016    

Dear Premier,  

The Town of Bay de Verde is writing to demand the Province of Newfoundland & Labrador provide income support for the processing workers affected by the fire at the Bay de Verde facility on April 11th, 2016.  

Currently the employees of Quinlan Brother's are working at a substantially reduced amount of hours.  Each season they would receive approximately 12-16 weeks of work.  With peak season these employees would be working for 60-70 hours for three to four weeks.    This season the workers are relocated at other facilities operating for approximately 35-38 hours per week. 

Under the current situation the employees will not gain 14 weeks of employment.   Combined with a reduction in income, the processing workers will effectively have their income reduced by 50% and as well translating into an employment insurance benefit reduction of 50%, if indeed they qualify for benefits.   

Consequently, we are demanding for the benefit of these workers income support to increase their employment insurance for the 2016 season by utilizing approximately $900,000 from the province's Emergency Fund of $30 million as was contained in the recent budget.   

We look forward to your response regarding this demand. 

Gerard Murphy, Mayor
Town of Bay de Verde
Cc:       Hon. Judy Foote, MP, Minister of Public Services & Procurement
Cc:       Hon. Steve Crocker, MHA, Minister of Fisheries & Agriculture
Cc:       Hon. Eddy Joyce, Minister Municipal Affairs
