One year later ABI smelter lockout continues and town fears for future

first_imgMONTREAL — As workers marked the one-year anniversary of the lockout at the ABI aluminum smelter in Becancour, Que. Friday, the impact of the lengthy conflict was being felt throughout the region.In addition to upending the lives of the plant’s 1,030 workers, the lockout is creating concern in the municipal administration and complicating life for local businesses. The slowdown has also deprived the provincial utility, Hydro-Quebec, of an estimated $215 million in revenues from sales it would have normally made to the smelter.The town of Becancour, hit by the closure of the Gentilly-2 nuclear reactor in 2012, relies heavily on ABI, which accounts for about 20 per cent — $4.5 million — of its tax base. It would be a “catastrophe for the region” if the smelter closed for good, Mayor Guy Dubois said.“We prefer not even to think about that,” Dubois said in a telephone interview. “But like it or not, we always have that at the back of our minds. For the moment, we have built our budget as though ABI was a corporate citizen as was the case in the past.”In 2018, despite the fact ABI gradually cut production and is now operating at one-sixth of capacity, Becancour did not see a drop in tax revenues coming from the company.But the plant’s unionized workers, whose average annual salary is around $80,000, are big contributors to the region’s economy. Currently, they are getting just $600 a week from their union, less than half their usual wages.The situation has had repercussions on local merchants, in particular restaurants, Dubois said, but so far none has been forced to close its doors. “The current context of full employment has helped a lot,” he explained. “It would be very different if the unemployment rate was higher.”Still, the lockout has had a negative impact in Becancour’s industrial park and port. ABI’s production cuts have meant a drop of about $1 million in revenues for the port, though this has been partly compensated by the development of new markets.There are no signs that the labour conflict is close to being resolved. The two sides show little sign of budging despite negotiating sessions and a mediation process that ended Dec. 21.The opposing sides are the United Steelworkers and ABI, which is 75 per cent owned by Pittsburgh-based Alcoa Corp. and 25 per cent by Montreal-headquartered Rio Tinto Alcan Inc. The main issues dividing the union and the employer are the pension plan and seniority provisions covering the assignment of workers.“I’ve joked in the past that the only thing we can do is pray,” Dubois said. “We hope that each side will be able to compromise a little. That’s the only way out of this.”After a year living on a much lower salary than usual, more and more workers are struggling to make ends meet. They say they have no intention of returning to work without a negotiated collective agreement, so many are turning to part-time jobs.Martine Gauthier, who has worked nearly 31 years at ABI, will soon be eligible for retirement, but she refuses to leave before the conflict is resolved.Her 25-year-old daughter is a graduate student at the Universite de Sherbrooke, and to help cover her tuition expenses, Gauthier is taking on a part-time job in addition to her picket duties. “Is Mom going to stop paying for her studies? No. My daughter is a good student. I cannot abandon her,” she said by telephone.Clement Masse, president of the union local, said the workers’ resolve is not cracking. But he acknowledged that he did not expect the impasse to last so long.“It’s been long,” Masse said in a telephone interview. “You can’t say that people aren’t fed up. What they want is a negotiated agreement. Naturally, we are going to meet our members in the coming weeks.”Union members planned a demonstration Friday afternoon outside the office of the local member of the provincial legislature, Donald Martel, who represents the governing Coalition Avenir Quebec. Their aim is to remind the government how long the conflict has dragged on.This week, the government announced the creation of a three-member working group drawn from bureaucrats in the Labour Department to examine the situation. But Labour Minister Jean Boulet said the government is not yet prepared to try to force a settlement.“I will not impose a solution,” he said in an interview. “I spoke up and expressed my huge disappointment at the way the two sides behaved during the mediation. But I can’t do the job on my own.” Julien Arsenault, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

TransCanada profit and revenue rise as oil and gas pipeline flows strengthen

first_imgCALGARY, A.B. – Higher volumes from its growing stable of oil and gas pipelines in the United States and Canada drove improvements in fourth-quarter earnings, TransCanada Corp. reported Thursday.Oil and gas production growth in the U.S. and full oil pipelines in Alberta _ where the provincial government has enacted production cuts to free up pipeline space and draw down overflowing storage _ helped drive net income to $1.09 billion, the Calgary-based company said.That translated to $1.19 per diluted share for the quarter ended Dec. 31, compared with a profit of $861 million or 98 cents per diluted share for the same quarter a year earlier. “With a $36-billion backlog of projects to drive cash flow growth over the next few years, we see the company as well-positioned to continue to grow cash flow and increase its dividend,” Edward Jones analyst Jennifer Rowland said in a report.Results were boosted by about $4 billion of growth projects that have been placed into service over the past 12 months, the company said.It reported higher contributions from its U.S. natural gas pipelines segment, mainly due to increased earnings from Columbia Gas and Columbia Gulf growth projects placed in service.It had higher earnings from its liquids pipelines segment primarily due to higher volumes on the Keystone pipeline system and increased earnings from liquids marketing activities and pipelines placed in service in the second half of 2017 in Alberta. The company said it had recovered $470 million in November from the five partners in the LNG Canada joint venture. That’s what TransCanada spent in pre-final investment decision costs on the $6.2-billion Coastal GasLink project it’s building to supply natural gas to a liquefied natural gas export facility on the B.C. coast.TransCanada said it now has commercial support for all available capacity on its proposed 590,000-barrel-per-day Keystone XL pipeline from Alberta into the U.S. and has started pre-construction activities.Earlier this week, Calgary-based oilsands producer Cenovus Energy Inc. said it had increased its shipping commitment from 50,000 to 150,000 bpd on the line, in part by assuming the Alberta government’s pledge to use 50,000 bpd of the capacity.TransCanada said it expects the Nebraska Supreme Court to reach a decision in the first quarter of 2019 regarding a challenge to the Nebraska Public Service Commission’s Keystone XL route approval.center_img “We continue to realize the growth expected from our industry-leading capital expansion program as we place new long-term contracted and rate-regulated assets into service,” said CEO Russ Girling on a conference call.“Simply, the demand for our infrastructure remains strong, driving historically high utilization rates across our systems. That, combined with new assets entering service, resulted in record earnings and cash flow for 2018.”For the year, TransCanada had net income attributable to common shares of $3.54 billion, versus just under $3 billion in 2017, as revenue rose to $13.68 billion from $13.45 billion.Revenue was $3.91 billion in the fourth quarter, up from $3.62 billion in the last three months of 2017.TransCanada also announced Thursday it would raise its quarterly dividend to 75 cents from 69 cents per share, representing its 19th consecutive annual increase.Comparable earnings for the quarter amounted to $1.03 per share, up from 82 cents per share a year earlier, beating analyst consensus expectations of 96 cents, according to Thomson Reuters Eikon.last_img read more
