Letters from Representative Counsel
Following our return from the Sept- Îles and Wabush meetings, we sent two letters which we attach for your reference:
On March 24, 2016 we were copied on a letter from counsel to the Bloom Lake CCAA Parties which can be viewed by clicking here.
We responded on March 28, 2016 reiterating our demand for Cliffs Mining Company to make all the payments to the Salaried Plan as required by law so that the pension reductions of the Salaried Plan members can be revoked and the payment of full pension benefits to the Salaried Plan members can resume as soon as possible. To see a copy of this correspondence please click here.
We will advise of any further developments at the Webinar.
A letter dated March 21, 2016 has been mailed to you with this information as well as the two letters referenced above. To view a copy please click here.
