It has yet to go to vote, but the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers’ Union is already banking on a rejection. The 620 workers employed at Stora Enso’s Port Hawkesbury mill will be voting on the company’s latest contract offer during the week of January 23, however, initial reaction to the proposal has been negative, the Chronicle Herald reported.
“Based on the reaction and the comments made at the meeting, it’s very probable that the offer will be rejected,” the Herald reported Don MacKenzie, the lead union negotiator as saying.
The offer also reportedly included a letter from Stora Enso indicating that should the offer be rejected, a lockout would be put into immediate effect.
