MONTREAL, June 19, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Lafarge is Canada's largest construction material solutions provider, and we are committed to building better cities and communities across Quebec by working with our partners to create the homes, roads, bridges, and transit-ways that people use every day.
Lafarge is disappointed that the situation has resulted in a strike action in the construction sector. The effect this strike has on our economy and our entire industry, which is so critical to maintaining a strong Quebec, is significant and has an impact every single day on our employees and our customers.
We are closely monitoring the impact of this strike on our business and will adapt when necessary.
We hope that all parties will do everything in their power to quickly minimize the impact this strike has on our industry and the economy.
We encourage all parties to maintain an open and transparent dialogue, leading to a quick resolution and agreement, so we can return to building better cities and communities across Quebec.
