The union representing employees at Kruger Products’ Crabtree, Que., tissue mill is very happy with the company’s announcement of a new paper machine for the mill.

Éric Sourdif, president of the union (Syndicat national des travailleuses et travailleurs des pâtes et papiers de Crabtree), said workers are Crabtree are currently working with old machinery in a very competitive industry. He said the mill needed a significant investment to solidify its market share and the jobs at Crabtree.

According to a statement from the union, the workers at Crabtree have agreed to an extension of five years on the current collective agreement, meaning it will expire in 2023. Sourdif says the employer requested a longer agreement in order to facilitate the investment.

The new paper machine is expected to begin production in the second half of 2017.
