Tentative Deal for Canfor Pulp and its Unions
Prince George, B.C. – Canfor Pulp has reached a tentative contract agreement with Unifor and the PPWC.
Except to say the package is a four year deal, the details of the package have not been released. This tentative deal will set the pattern for negotiations at 17 other pulp and paper mills in B.C. and Alberta.
In a release issued by Unifor, the union’s leader negotiator in the pulp and paper sector, Scott Doherty, is quoted as saying”By working jointly with the PPWC, we were able to secure a strong deal that meets our members’ needs during the term of the contract.”
“We appreciate the professionalism of the union teams throughout the bargaining process and we look forward to ratification of the tentative agreement,” added Canfor spokesperson Corinne Stavness. “Without our talented and dedicated employees throughout the organization, we quite simply don’t have a business – so we are pleased to have come to an agreement and look forward to finalizing it.”
There have been no details on ratification dates.
