BC’s Liquefied Natural Gas / Union leaders join Premier to train thousands workers

Some of British Columbia’s most powerful labour leaders are pledging to work with Premier Christy Clark’s Liberal government and the energy industry to help thousands of B.C. workers land jobs in what could be the province’s multi-billion-dollar liquefied natural gas industry.

B.C. Federation of Labour President Jim Sinclair and B.C. Building Trades Council executive director Tom Sigurdson emerged from a closed-door meeting Monday with Clark saying jobs trump politics when it comes to developing and securing B.C.’s LNG opportunity.

Clark, flanked by the two labour leaders, said the unions, her government and industry representatives will work together to develop a strategy to train B.C. workers for what could result in up to 100,000 new jobs in northern B.C.

A joint working document will be prepared and could be ready by the end of this month, she said.

“Government can’t do this alone,” said Clark. “Labour can’t do this alone. Industry can’t do this alone. We need to put aside our differences. People don’t care about politics. They care about jobs.”
