An official with the union representing Ontario Northland workers says a business plan is ready and was submitted to the provincial government today.

Earlier this month, the premier told the union and company to sit down and come up with a plan.

Union spokesperson Brian Kelly said the two groups had meetings over a two-week period and a document is ready.

"We figured that both parties were on the same level playing field, we wanted to keep the ONTC intact and together and we knew who better than the people who actually work there to put together a business plan,” he said.

Today's meeting with the province went well, Kelly added. He was unable to release any details of the document, as it will remain confidential until the government responds.
