CEP Locals vote ‘yes’ to Kruger’s latest offer in Corner Brook
The CEP Locals at Corner Brook Pulp and Paper have voted in favour of Kruger‘s latest contract offer.
CEP Local 96, the electrician’s local, was the only one of the five CEP locals to reject the offer. Lodge 1567 of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers also vote against the offer earlier in the week.
The new collective agreement will be effective immediately.
The company will now hold a second vote on the pension plan funding relief measures. Both the active and retired members of the unionized employees’ Pension Plan will re-vote. This voting process is expected to be completed by August 22.
Kruger has said that the company will continue to assess the mill’s viability and will continue its efforts to reduce the mill’s operating costs by applying necessary cost-cutting measures.
