Vale is rejecting the USW’s allegations of negligence.
In a response to the union’s report…Vale’s General Manager of Ontario Operations Kelly Strong says they stand by their own internal investigation that concluded there were a number of factors that led to the deaths with no single cause or individual at fault.
Strong says there is no new factual information in the union report that the company’s investigation team had not considered.
However, there is a distinct difference with how the USW has chosen to interpret and draw conclusions from those facts.
He says the company remains committed to doing everything to put in place measures to ensure a tragedy like this never happens again.
