WMC Statement on Video Footage Showing Eco-terrorists Harassing G-tac Employees

Statement by WMC Vice President of Government Relations Scott Manley on video footage showing eco-terrorists harassing G-tac employees at the remote drilling site in the Penokee Hills.

“All employers have a duty and responsibility to take every step necessary to protect the safety and security of their employees in the workplace, no matter where that workplace is.  After watching the graphic video footage of the raid on the G-tac drilling site by eco-terrorists, it is obvious that the hiring of specially trained armed guards to protect G-tac employees operating in a very remote location is both prudent and appropriate. WMC calls on the legislature to act to restrict access to the test drilling sites before someone gets hurt.”
