Paper Excellence receives strike notice from Crofton mill union

October 21, 2022  By P&PC Staff

Paper Excellence received a 72-hour strike notice on October 21 from one of the unions at its Crofton mill, the Public and Private Workers of Canada (PPWC) local 2. This put the union in a strike position on Saturday, October 22.

Since July 2022, Paper Excellence has been negotiating with PPWC local 2, which represents 370 of the 575 employees that work at the site.  According to the company, those discussions recently hit an impasse. The company’s mediation request was rejected by the union.  The negotiations committee will continue to meet as they try to resolve the situation.

To protect the health and safety of employees, the integrity of the local environment, and preserve the company’s assets at Crofton, Paper Excellence has begun a controlled and orderly shutdown of the kraft pulp mill and mechanical paper operations.
