Unifor, PPWC, and Canfor sign pulp and paper sector tentative agreement

Prince George—Pattern bargaining for Western Canada's pulp and paper sector has concluded with a four-year tentative agreement signed by Unifor, the Public and Private Workers of Canada (PPWC), and Canfor Pulp.

"The tentative agreement signed today reflects the important contributions of our members at pulp and paper workplaces across the West," said Joie Warnock, Unifor's Western Regional Director.

Today's tentative agreement with Canfor Pulp will set the pattern for Unifor and PPWC's 17 other pulp and paper mills in BC and Alberta.

"By working jointly with the PPWC, we were able to secure a strong deal that meets our members' needs during the term of the contract," said Scott Doherty, Executive Assistant to Unifor's National President. Doherty is Unifor's lead negotiator in the pulp and paper sector.

"Pulp and paper jobs are critical to small and medium-sized communities across the region, and we're proud to achieve a collective agreement that will support working families," said Gary Fiege, Vice-President of the PPWC.
