The Communications, Energy and Paperworkers’ Union has set up labour adjustment centres to help people who have lost their forestry sector jobs.
The union recently opened two locations in the province of Ontario, one in Thunder Bay, the other in Red Rock. Designed to provide former or current forestry industry workers with career advice, the centres expect roughly 800 individuals to avail themselves of their services, the Chronicle Journal has reported.
Clients will be able to take advantage of a 20-40 minute appraisal of their training and employment requirements, which will then be followed up by feedback on possible options.
According to the Chronicle Journal, the centres are scheduled to remain in operation for more than one year and have been set up through a partnership led by the CEP and shared with Norampac, Cascades, Service Canada and Ontario’s Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.
