Portland, OR — Louisiana-Pacific Corporation (LP) announced it will restart its Chambord, Quebec, oriented strand board (OSB) mill. The mill, idled for 13 months due to an employee work stoppage, is expected to resume production within three to four weeks.
Through the assistance of a government-appointed conciliator, LP reached an agreement with the members of the Syndicat Canadien des Communications, de l’energie et du papier, section locale 502Q, on a new seven-year contract.
“We’re looking forward to our folks returning to work,” stated Harold Stanton, vice president of LP’s OSB business. “This production, along with that of our recently restarted Woodland, Maine, OSB mill, will help to mitigate any product shortages caused by poor weather conditions and resulting log shortages along the East Coast. This will help to ensure that we can meet our customers’ needs in the coming months.”
