Trucking company Hyndman Transport has filed for bankruptcy, meaning 400 people in the region will be without a job this Christmas.
AYR - Trucking company Hyndman Transport has filed for bankruptcy, meaning 400 people in the region will be without a job this Christmas.
They have closed their American parent company Celadon Group Inc. already, with locations in Ayr and Wroxeter. Township of North Dumfries Mayor Sue Foxton says this will impact a lot of people.
"The Township extends our heart felt thoughts and support to the displaced employees and their families that work for Hyndman Transport. The impacts on the employees and their families, especially at this time of year as we approach the Holiday Season, makes these job losses even more significant. Since the announcement yesterday, we have reached out and have started to work with Federal MP Bryan May, Provincial MPP Belinda Karahalios and Chair Karen Redman at the Region of Waterloo so that together with community, regional, provincial, and federal partners we can respond and assist the employees of Hyndman Transport.”
It is unclear at this time what the long-term outcome will be for Hyndman Transport, but some drivers have been stranded as a result of the closure and a small group of staff and other trucking firms are working to get these employees home and out of these precarious situations.
