Letter to Nunavut government gives notice of mass terminations starting Aug. 31
Baffinland Iron Mines Corporation intends to lay off up to 1,328 employees – including 209 Inuit – later this year, according to a notice the company served to the Nunavut government.
The letter, dated June 3, says the mass terminations are expected between Aug. 31 and Oct. 31.
However, Joseph Tigullaraq, the head of northern affairs at Baffinland, said Monday afternoon that the company is still working to get approval from the Nunavut Impact Review Board (NIRB) to continue shipping six million tonnes of ore from its Mary River mine this year to prevent the layoffs.
