Mayor Colette Roy-Laroche says Montreal, Maine & Atlantic has not yet paid any of the workers it hired to clean up the crude oil that leaked from dozens of tanker cars.
She told a news conference today that Lac-Megantic has paid the workers $4 million so far after some threatened to walk off the job.
Roy-Laroche says lawyers have been told to inform MMA that it must pay up right away.
She described the situation as completely unacceptable.
Forty-two bodies have been found since the blaze and explosions on July 6, with another five people missing and presumed dead.
