The final details have yet to be worked out, but a reopening of Cascades’ fine papers facility in Thunder bay looks promising.
According to a recent report by Thunder Bay News Source, the next month will have Cascades’ and investment group Thunder Bay Fine Paper busy finalizing some key issues. Ratifying and putting the final touches on a collective agreement between the four unions and the company, as well as sorting the logistics of recalling employees, currently stand as the two major areas that need to be resolved.
TB News Source reported Marvin Pupeza, the Communications, Energy and Paperworker’s union representative as saying there may be challenges associated with trying to call roughly 400 people back to work, however, he envisions no major impediments from the unions.
The report further confirmed that capital improvements are in order, and Thunder Bay Fine Papers will have to complete their own due diligence process. Once these outstanding items are resolved, both partners expect the mill to have a successful start-up.
