Pennecon has confirmed that it has reduced its workforce at the Muskrat Falls site to 80 from 225.
The workers were sent home last week amid word the company was “reshaping” its workforce.
Pennecon confirmed last week that it was “temporarily demobilizing” workers at the Converter Stations Civil Works Project.
Work will resume at the site tomorrow with a reduced workforce of 80 people. That workforce is expected to increase in the spring.
Calls to the newsroom this morning indicated some workers at the site who thought they had up to 18 months of work, have received their layoffs. One was told their equipment which is still in a locker at Happy Valley-Goose Bay, will be shipped home.
