Olymel optimizing production at Red Deer plant with shift changes


A plan to re-organize night and day shifts will impact some workers at Red Deer’s pork processing plant Olymel in order to optimize production as Canadian manufacturers continue to experience labour shortages, says the company.


Olymel spokesperson Richard Vigneault said changes will impact about 110 workers, and there will be no layoffs.


“On the contrary, we are still hiring like many other manufacturers. We are still in need of manpower. There’s no layoffs,” Vigneault said.


He said a notice went out to employees in early November. Changes to work assignments are allowed under the collective agreement with United Food and Commercial Workers Local 401. Similar changes happened at the plant in July which were very successful.
