- OF COURSE THE UNION DOES SEE HOW THEY CAN CUT JOBS

the union obviously will not see how to cut jobs. that is why you need management, or consultants to come in and decided what jobs to cut and what jobs to combine. Companies should engage in workforce reduction analysis every year. The job of every employee should be scrutinized and then changes should be made to roll 3 jobs into 2, or 8 jobs into 7. There is always a way to do less with the same amount of workers, you just have to find efficiencies. I do this every year, and pop the savings into my RRSPs or into my investments. I is just smart business and every employer should engage in this 1-2 times a year. I've done this kind of consulting too, and yes it is very lucrative. But what is more noteworthy is that I have never, ever told a client that there are not cuts to be made.

there are a number of scenarios that could be playing out here...kruger will attempt to divest its energy assets from the milling operation, there will be more kruger energy projects in the near future, emera may end up being tied into it somehow either as a partner in wind/ hydro or as an exporter for the power. just some guesses as to what's going on. they're holding out for something, and it ain't the pretty scenery.
