In keeping with a disturbing trend, Tembec has announced plans to temporarily shut down operations at its newsprint facility in Kapuskasing, ON. Scheduled for the second half of January, the curtailment will last only two weeks, but will see a production reduction of roughly 13,000 metric tonnes and will affect approximately 600 direct jobs. In turn the Tembec sawmill at the Kapuskasing site will also be closed during the same period. An additional 120 workers will be laid off as a result. Tembec credits the bolstered Canadian dollar coupled with high industrial electricity rates for the decision.
