SUP Commends Ontario Government's Pickering NGS Commitment

The Society of United Professionals (SUP/IFPTE Local 160) is encouraged by the Ontario government’s support for operating the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station (Pickering) through 2025. The move protects more than 4,000 good Ontario jobs for an additional year.

“This extension of Pickering B operations is critical for the province and demonstrates the government’s strong commitment to Ontario’s nuclear advantage,” said Society of United Professionals Secretary-Treasurer Michelle Johnston. “Ontario needs Pickering’s clean, reliable and affordable baseload power while major refurbishment projects require some generating units to be offline at Darlington and Bruce Nuclear Generating Stations. Operating Pickering to the end of 2025 also secures more than 4,000 good local jobs at a time of great economic uncertainty due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.”
