Mary Shortall, President of the Newfoundland & Labrador Federation of Labour (NLFL), submitted her resignation from the Premier’s Economic Recovery Team (PERT) to Premier Andrew Furey this morning.  Shortall thanked the Premier for the invitation to serve on the Team, stating that she entered the process with an open mind and a desire to be an active and engaged participant. However, she believes that her continued participation will place her in conflict with her role and mandate as President of the NLFL, representing 70,000 members who have elected her to her position.  You can read the full media release here.
