Unionized workers at the now-idled NewPage Port Hawkesbury mill in Nova Scotia received a welcome Christmas present from fellow workers at the nearby Northern Pulp Nova Scotia mill. Local 440 of the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union delivered a $20,000 donation from its members to the former NewPage Port Hawkesbury employees, according to a story in the Chronicle Herald on Dec. 13.

“We’re making this donation to support our brothers who are out of work and we’re trying to help them with the Christmas season,” MacLaughlin said in a news release.

The donation works out to about $50 per recipient.

The NewPage newsprint and supercalendered mill has been closed since September, and is currently up for sale.
