Shell Canada is cutting an unspecified number of salaried positions at its Corunna refinery in 2016 to remain competitive in a challenging economy.

Spokesman Randy Provencal says he can’t get into numbers at this point but the reductions will affect employees like engineers and office support staff and not hourly workers.

“The employees who are working in the plant, running the plant, they’re not impacted by these staffing reductions,” says Provencal.

“Shell is taking the necessary steps to ensure our manufacturing site here in Corunna is competitive through all economic cycles, right now what we’re doing is exploring a number of efficiencies which will result in some staff reductions in the coming year.”

Provencal says they’re starting to have some face to face communications with staff right now and they’re doing everything possible to minimize the number of employees affected.

“This is going to be difficult news for those who are impacted and we certainly appreciate how hard that’s going to be for those impacted by these staffing reductions. We are going to do everything we can to support them throughout this period of time.”

The Shell Canada website says the Corunna plant on the St. Clair Parkway has 350 full-time employees and capacity of 75,000 barrels of crude oil daily.
