               “The disregard INCO has for the men working there, and the effects they suffer
          in those stinking          conditions      sound out something             like of the coal mines in the
          eighteenth       century.      It makes a farce of INCO’s so-called concern over safety.”
               These remarks were made by Kenneth                         Valentine,     the vice-president of Local
          6500, United Steelworkers                of America.       This union has charged the International
          Nickel Company of Canada of maintaining                     “archaic and unsafe“ working conditions
          to the actual poisoning of workers.                   INCO and inspectors         from the Department   of
          Mines deny this.
