After being out of commission for nearly a year, Stora Enso’s Port Hawkesbury mill is once again up and running.

According to a recent report by the Chronicle Herald, the settling of a challenging labour dispute culminated in the restarting of PM1, and the calling back to work of the facility’s 610 employees.

“The employees are both excited and relieved to see the newsprint machine running,” the Chronicle Herald reported Stora Enso spokeswoman Patricia Dietz as saying. “We now have a full complement of employees at the mill.” PM2 resumed production several weeks ago.

The mill closed last December for a scheduled 48-hour shutdown, which was then followed by a five-month strike and subsequent lockout.
