Important Notice re:.CNRL Camps

 

To follow is a communication from Canadian National Resources

 

Effective August 15, 2017 the licensed lounges/bars at the Horizon and Albian Sands sites will be permanently closed and both Canadian Natural work sites will become dry work sites/camps in alignment with all other Canadian Natural operating facilities.  Where camps and sites are designated as ‘dry’, alcohol is not permitted anywhere on the premises. 

Possession of alcohol on company property (including camp rooms) after August 15, 2017 is prohibited as per the Alcohol & Drug Policy.  Please be reminded that a violation of the Alcohol & Drug Policy is very serious and will result in corrective action up to and including termination of employment for employees, and removal from Company property or contract termination for Contractors.

 

If you have alcohol in your possession:

  • You must either take it home or otherwise dispose of it prior to August 15, 2017.

  • If your shift rotation does not end until after August 15, 2017, you can take the alcohol to Security who will hold it for you until your next flight home.  Security will dispose of any alcohol that is not claimed following your first checkout from camp after August 15, 2017.

Please direct any questions to your supervisor, your HR Business Advisor or Labour Relations.
