The unions filed documents in federal court on Friday outlining some of the qualifications found within the resumés of about 300 Canadian applicants. They claimed there were several qualified candidates for jobs at the mine, but the company says the unions' documents aren't accurate, and HD will file an official response in court by February 15.
The company is also reiterating arguments it has previously made, specifically that no other mine in Canada is currently using the methods it plans to employ at Murray River.
A judicial review of Ottawa's decision to issue the temporary foreign worker permits has been tentatively set to be heard in April.
