Labrador Iron Ore Royalty Corporation Provides Second Update on IOC Labour Relations

April, 02, 2018

TORONTO, April 2, 2018 /CNW/ - Labrador Iron Ore Royalty Corporation ("LIORC") (TSX: LIF) announced that it has been advised that the USW Local 9344 (Sept-Îles) has rejected IOC's offer and voted in favour of a strike. Given statutory delays, Local 9344 will not have the right to actually strike before April 10 at the earliest.  IOC is having ongoing discussions with the union regarding the maintenance, during a strike, of essential services (mainly freight and passenger service to Schefferville and Labrador City) for which some qualified unionized employees are required.  

As noted in the previous press release, the strike at IOC is expected to adversely affect the revenue of LIORC as its income is entirely dependent on the sale of iron ore products by IOC.
