The City of Sault Ste. Marie wants a commitment from both the major provincial parties and local candidates ahead of the June 7th election regarding our local steel plant and its efforts to exit creditor protection under new ownership after a lengthy process.
Mayor Provenzano has sent letters to the four main party leaders calling on all of them to commit to carrying out the work and commitments already made by the current government and make every effort to assist in the finalization and completition of the restructuring process as expeditiously as possible.
Letters have also been sent to local candidates looking for similar supports and commitments.
Mayor Provenzano says the Ontario Government has an important role to play in a successful conclusion to a process that has lasted two-and-a-half years.

Both United Steelworkers Locals 2251 and 2724 representing the vast majority of workers at Algoma have had to postpone information meetings that had been scheduled after a tentative deal was reached with consenting creditors last week.
Both union locals say complications have arisen regarding the tentative deal as there is an issue with the signing authority on behalf of the consenting creditors.
The Steelworkers say the document must be signed by the parties to bind the parties to the agreement.
Once the technical issues have been dealt with, special membership meetings will follow.
