Running dry: Many Co-op gas stations still without fuel in Winnipeg

Many Co-op gas stations in and around Winnipeg are running on empty.

The fuel shortage comes amid the ongoing labour dispute between Co-op and its workers at a Regina refinery.

Red River Co-op chief executive officer Doug Wiebe says they’re caught in the crossfire.

“We’re very disappointed and frustrated by what’s transpired, as basically an innocent third party bystander here, we’ve been thrust into this dispute between Federated (Co-op) and Unifor, the union that represents the workers,” Wiebe told Global News.

“As a result, our 310,000 members are being held hostage by what’s transpired, by not being able to buy fuel from Red River Co-op.”
