    Unions, companies need to meet halfway on foreign workers, says analyst - By RENATO GANDIA, Fort McMurray Today, Alberta Canada
    At least four projects I know are going to require 10,000 people all at the same time. If all these projects go ahead, obviously there’s going to be shortages in electricians, welders and pipefitters based upon the information that I received from companies,” said Schulz.

    In addressing the labour shortage, many options are available to companies: stagger the construction for a period of time; expedite training of more Canadian workers; bring workers from other parts of Canada or North America or bring in immigrant workers.
