The period of uncertainty will soon end for employees of Hamilton Place, Copps Coliseum and the Hamilton Convention Centre.
HECFI CEO John Hertel says they've set February.19th as the date on which staffers will find out if they are receiving job offers from the new private operator or merely severance payments.
Hertel says that they will be "reveiwing with all team members", with Global Spectrum on site and with support from the city's human resources department.
Hertel is optimistic of a future role for many of the 52 full time and approximately 750 "event driven" part time employees.
In making the organization's annual presentation to city politicians, Hertel has also credited HECFI staff with remaining "loyal, dedicated and resilient through turbulent times".
