Neucel Specialty Cellulose has penned a collective agreement with the Communications, Energy and Paperworker’s (CEP) union.

The resolution stipulates a five-year term guaranteeing freedom from labour disruptions during the term of the contract. It additionally ensures employee membership in the pulp and paper industry pension plan, and contains a provision for assistance in recruiting new employees from other operations where they already have membership in the plan.

“This resolution of several key labour relations issues creates an opportunity to move forward with a renewed commitment and to work together to ensure the success of the Port Alice operation,” said CEP national representative David Schaub. “We are also committed to continuing to work on remaining topics of mutual concern,” he added.
