Negotiations between a Newfoundland paper mill and its forestry workers have broken off in the second breakdown since negotiations began this spring, reported a release from Canadian Press. <br>
Corner Brook Pulp and Paper Limited has been a part of the Kruger organization since December 1984 and is a vital force in the economy of western Newfoundland.<br>
However, the 550 unionized silviculture workers and loggers at Corner Brook Pulp and Paper have been without a contract since the end of December 2003. The main topics under discussion are the wages and on-site living but recent negotiations broke down on August 13 after only a few days, although officials with the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union wouldn’t say what caused the latest breakdown.<br>
