Active and retired unionized employees of Corner Brook Pulp and Paper have approved Kruger’s proposal to apply funding relief measures to their pension plan’s deficit. According to Kruger, these relief measures were essential to the mill’s ability to compete in the market and will enable the company to pursue its assessment of the mill’s long-term viability.

Unionized employees had voted against the funding relief measures earlier this year.
