Greenergy is welcoming Tim Johnson as executive VP of sales to lead the continued growth of its fuel sales to the commercial and retail sectors in Canada.

Mike Healey, Greenergy Fuels Canada’s CEO said in a release: “Tim Johnson has over 15 year’s sales experience in the fuel industry and joins us from McDougall Energy.  He will lead a new sales team for Greenergy based out of Toronto, and work with the existing team in Saint John, New Brunswick.”

“Greenergy’s infrastructure investments, uniquely flexible supply chains and its innovative retail offer have made it a growing player in the Canadian road fuel market,” said Johnson. “The company has proven itself as a low-cost, reliable fuel supplier, and I look forward to bringing this offer to new customers.”

In business in the UK for 27 years, Greenergy is an established supplier and distributor of transportation fuels. Since entering the Canadian market in 2013, Greenergy has invested in strategic  infrastructure assets, with Ontario terminals in Concord, Hamilton, Thunder Bay and Johnstown (opening fall 2019).  With both sea and rail-fed terminals and storage in the U.S. Mid-West, Quebec and Ontario, Greenergy can source product through multiple channels, which the company says minimizes dependency on any one third party provider and reduces the risk of supply disruption for customers.

Greenergy is expanding sales to the retail sector and now offers independent fuel retailers a choice of brands including Breakaway and Inver.


Tentative deal could end Saskatoon Co-op strike

UnknownA ratification vote will be held this week on a tentative agreement to end a strike by hundreds of unionized Saskatoon Co-op workers that’s dragged on for more than five months.

The United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1,400 says the deal covering about 900 employees was reached early Sunday morning.

It followed two days of mediated talks between the union and Saskatoon Co-operative on Friday and Saturday.

Union spokesman Rod Gillies says details won’t be made public until after the ballots are cast.

The tentative agreement also covers workers in Martensville, Warman, Colonsay and Watrous who are employed in retail food, gas bar, convenience store, agro centre, home centre and car wash operations.

The workers set up pickets Nov. 1 after rejecting a company offer that included lower wages for new employees.

Both sides had accused each other of not being flexible at the bargaining table and the union had asked for binding arbitration.

The employees have been without a contract for more than two years.
