Pulp and paper industry in NL set to suffer another blow

Nobody knows for sure yet, but what does seem to be certain about news coming from the Corner Brook mill is that it’s not going to be good. “I don’t know any of the details,” Dave Coles, the national president of the Communications Energy and Paperworkers union, told CBC News. “I was just given a message that there would be an announcement, apparently today, affecting out membership in the mill in Corner Brook.” It is expected that the mill will be announcing lay-offs, however there are conflicting reports if an announcement is imminent or if the mill will wait until meetings later in the Spring. The Corner Brook mill is the last operating mill in the province.
