The month of November will be tight on the pocketbook for 300 unionized AbitibiBowater workers in Thorold, ON, but relief is scheduled for December 1. The company is closing its Thorold mill for the entire month of November, during which time employees will go without pay.
“This will probably be the longest we’ve been closed in I don’t know how many years,” the St. Catharine’s Standard reported human resources manager Mary Cantwell as saying. She further notes the shutdown as being “very unique” and that news of the closure came as a “big shock” to employees.
The mill is scheduled to reopen on December 1. The mill produces 400,000 tonnes of recycled paper per year, and runs every day except for Christmas, the Standard confirmed.
