The union representing workers at Nova Scotia Power fears more job cuts will continue to trickle over the next few months.

On Thursday, a unionized regional planner received a layoff notice in Bridgewater and another non-unionized worker got a severance package.

Thirteen workers at the coal plant in Trenton also learned last week their jobs are in jeopardy.

Nova Scotia Power said it's part of a plan to outsource line inspection work.

Last October, the power company said 250 jobs could be lost as a result.

Workers were supposed to hear more about their future by the end of this month but the union expects that will be delayed again.

Jeff Richardson is the business manager for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers local 1928.

"People are at their wit's end,” said Richardson. He said over 30 tradespeople have quit and moved to Western Canada because of the cuts in the last year.

“People aren't staying for the uncertainty. They're picking up, and they're leaving with their families. And it's rural Nova Scotia that's really going to suffer from this." 

A spokesperson for Nova Scotia Power says they're not commenting on "personnel matters."
