At least one Winnipeg Co-op gas station has replenished its fuel supply amid the ongoing labour dispute with workers at a Regina refinery.
Customers could be seen filling up at the Co-op Gas Bar at 1745 Kenaston Blvd. Sunday afternoon after it ran out of fuel, along with several other locations across the city, late last week.
A clerk at the location confirmed they currently have regular gas.
The shortages come as a result of blockades set up by Unifor members at refineries in Regina.
A spokesperson for Unifor told Global News that Co-op got some fuel trucks out of Regina on Friday when local police interfered with their “legal right to picket.”
Unifor and Co-op Refinery Complex (CRC) have been in a labour dispute since Dec. 5, 2019, after employees were locked out of work.
A spokesperson for Co-op could not be reached on Sunday to confirm if any other Winnipeg locations will have their fuel supplies replenished.
Last week, Co-op CEO Doug Wiebe said convenience stores and car washes are still operating.
Unifor represents some Global News employees.
