Miramichi’s UPM kraft mill has the pledged support of the PACE union in its efforts to stay up and running. Delegates to the national convention of the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada have conveyed their intention to buttress the endeavors in Miramichi, NB to keep the mill operating.

“We have no intention of standing idly by while UPM or any other company tries to close a perfectly viable mill and throw 400 of our brothers and sisters out of work,” said CEP national president Brian Pane.

Convention delegates unanimously adopted an emergency resolution supporting the continued operation of the kraft mill. The resolution also called on the NB government to immediately lift the license now held by UPM if it closes the mill.
