Letters: ‘Pool closure would be hard for staff’

We have approximately 50 employees who would potentially be affected: union.

Editor, The News:

A long-term closure would clearly be very difficult for our community and for many of our aquatics staff.

We have approximately 50 employees who would potentially be affected.

We are in discussions with the employer to look at any and all options to keep staff and services in this community in the event that we have a year or longer closure of the Leisure Centre pool.

We were pleased to hear our mayor and other councillors express concern for workers and the jobs and we hope that we can work with them to find solutions to mitigate as much as possible.
