Corner Brook Pulp and Paper strikes new deals with its labor unions

CORNER BROOK, Newfoundland (From news reports) -- Corner Brook Pulp and Paper has reached a new collective agreement with all of its unionized employees.

Kruger Inc., the mill's Montreal-based parent company, confirmed Thursday the deal has been done, but would not comment any further on the details of the negotiations.

According to Unifor, which represents five unions at the mill, the deal is for a four-year period and was ratified last fall. It includes wage increases of two per cent in the first two years and 2.5 per cent in the final two years of the agreement.

In addition, the agreement increases vision care coverage, introduces massage benefits and supplements the existing defined benefit pension plan.

The employer has agreed to contribute to Unifor's Canadian Community Fund.

The Western Star was unable to reach any union officials for further comment, but one source who is employed at the mill said there were no major issues that had to be overcome and the deal with his union was one of the best he has ever seen in the decades he was worked there.
