Unifor says four more arrested at Co-op Refinery Tuesday night

Unifor says it is disappointed that four more members were arrested Tuesday night while peacefully picketing at the Co-op Refinery Complex.

The union claims the members taken into custody were doing nothing wrong and had no blockades up.

Discussions on a mediation process with Premier Scott Moe remain ongoing at this time.

A court order says that Unifor is not allowed to set up blockades.

On Friday discussions between the two sides ended rather quickly without much reported progress towards a new deal.

Regina Police confirmed the arrests in a news release Wednesday morning.

Officers say the arrests were made at about 12:42 a.m..

Forty-one-year-old Ryan James David Briggs, 30-year-old James Peter Robert Cheeseman, 34-year-old Scott McKinnon and 45-year-old Steve Angus Vargo were all charged with mischief under $5,000.

All four were released on officer undertakings and will make their first court appearances on March 23rd.
