Mill Deal In Fort Frances

Resolute Forest Products and Unifor have agreed to keep workers on site at the Fort Frances plant for a little longer. Local and National Unifor President Stephen Boon says they have agreed to extend a July agreement, allowing the number 7 paper machine to run up until December 15th. The original agreement was expected to conclude next week. Boon says after a number of meetings, they decided on the extension due to additional paper orders. The workers have been working on the machine since July.
