SASKATOON, Feb. 13, 2020 /CNW/ - Federated Co-operatives Limited (FCL) has lifted daily card purchase restrictions on diesel and gasoline that were implemented last week at Co-op Cardlocks across the three Prairie provinces as a result of Unifor's illegal blockades at the Co-op Refinery Complex and FCL Carseland Fuel Terminal.
Since access to these sites has been regained, fuel is again being supplied to Co-op Cardlock locations and local co-op locations that were out of fuel.
On behalf of FCL and all local Co-ops, thank you to Co-op Cardlock customers for your patience. We realize these outages and restrictions had a major impact on you and your businesses.
FCL continues to safely and efficiently operate the Co-op Refinery Complex (CRC), which is producing fuel at normal seasonal rates.
