Aurora Cannabis reducing workforce at Edmonton-area facility reports Global News Canada.
The reports says
The changes will impact the Aurora Sky facility near the Edmonton International Airport, one of the world’s largest cannabis facilities.
Late Tuesday night, company spokesperson Michelle Lefler confirmed to Global News that 214 workers will be impacted by the workforce reductions and that “Aurora Sky will be scaled back by 75 per cent.”
“A distinct pillar of our stated leadership plan is to evolve our operations network to be more aligned to sales trends and more dynamic in its ability to meet the evolving needs of the consumer,” CEO Miguel Martin said in a statement on Tuesday. “To remain a leader in the cannabis industry, it is critical that we realign our operations at our sky-class facility, Aurora Sky.
“Regretfully the changes at Aurora Sky will result in a reduction of our workforce. This is a difficult decision but one we must make for the health of our entire business.”
