CALGARY, Dec. 10, 2014 /CNW/ - On December 8, 2014, the Syndicate Committee for the Employees of Block 9 (the "Union") initiated procedures to implement an illegal strike action which may result in a shut-down of oil production on Block 9, Republic of Yemen.
The Union is demanding the reinstatement of certain staff laid off by the Company due to the current economic conditions. These layoffs were conducted pursuant to the Yemeni labour law. The Company is working to maintain production operations and is in discussions with all parties to ensure the impact on production operations is minimized.
