Approximately 350 members of the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada working at St. Mary’s Paper mill have ratified a new collective agreement, a year before the old one expired
“It is a bit unusual,” said the union’s Ontario region vice president, Cec Makowski. “But it is definitely a good news story for our members and for Sault Ste. Marie.”
The new agreement brings the CEP members in line with the eastern Canada pattern contract settlement reached last year and is now implemented with every major employer in the pulp and paper sector from Ontario to Newfoundland.
Industry wide wage increases, benefits and pensions are now part of the Sault Ste. Marie collective agreement, including an expiry date which lines the workers with the rest of the industry.
