Contract proposal on the table in Port Hawkesbury, NS
After 16 days of meetings between Stern Partners (Pacific West Commercial Corp.) and the CEP representing the workers of the former NewPage Port Hawkesbury mill, a contract proposal is on the table.
At a meeting tomorrow night (Thursday), the workers will be presented with the details of the proposed contract.
Workers will not vote on the proposal at the meeting, but they will decide if they want to vote at a future date.
CEP Local 972 spokesperson Steve MacDougall said, ”It has been a very gruelling couple of weeks. We sat down, went over the documents, and we negotiated in good faith- we are now waiting on our members to see what they think of the whole deal.”
If the workers decide not to vote on the contract, Stern Partners may walk away from their offer to purchase the Port Hawkesbury paper mill.
