The Communications, Energy and Paperworkers union is calling on New Brunswicks provincial government to pull together a summit involving forestry industry stakeholders, to try and save the sector.
We think we have some very sound ideas on how to turn this economic crisis around and we want to hear from all the others, including companies, about building a future for our members and our communities, said Ervan Cronk, Atlantic region vice president of the CEP.
CEP members and others are here today to tell Mr. Graham that workers and communities must be an integral part of the process of revitalization for this sector. We want private meetings between corporations and government to stop and we want in!
Cronk is calling on the government to publicly announce that it will not allow the export of logs or chips taken from Crown land, and to prevent companies from cutting timber on Crown land while their mills remain inoperative.
There can be no viable solution without broader participation, Cronk said. CEP today is demanding a summit of all stakeholders to start building a future.
