Canadian forestry company Tolko has announced that it will be reducing some graveyard and weekend shifts at its Heffley Creek mill in Kamloops.

The move comes as a result of a drop in demand for certain wood products, with the graveyard lathe shift and weekend drying shifts to be impacted from the first week of April.

The Heffley Creek Mill employs 250 people who produce plywood and veneer. Tolko's Director of People and Services, Brett VanderHoek, stated that the company is working to redeploy affected employees within the terms of the collective agreement. This is not the first time Tolko has had to make such a move, with the company temporarily ceasing operations at its Armstrong and Soda Creek facilities earlier this year.
