Paper machine deal extended
Resolute Fort Frances Division and Unifor Locals 92 and 306 have agreed to extend a July manpower agreement allowing the #7 paper machine to now run up to Dec. 15.
“The original manning agreement was expected to conclude next week,” noted Unifor national representative Stephen Boon.
More than 40 Unifor members in Fort Frances have been working on the #7 paper machine temporarily since July.
“We have once again ensured the recall option continues to be 100 percent voluntary for laid-off Unifor members and does not negatively impact their seniority, future recall rights, or severance entitlements,” Boon said.
