Tembec will shut down three sawmills in three provinces for five weeks in June.

Tembec will shut down three sawmills in three provinces for five weeks in June.
The mills in Barn, QC; Cochrane, ON and Canal Flats, BC, have been hard hit by the unwarranted and illegal countervailing duties and anti-dumping penalty imposed on softwood lumber by the U.S. The recent strength of the Canadian dollar has aggravated the situation. Activities have also been suspended at the Kirkland Lake, Ontario, sawmill since November 2002 for the same reasons.
During meetings held at each of the three mills, employees and union representatives were informed of the company’s decision and discussed the situation with management.
The shutdown will affect over 490 direct jobs.
