Crofton pulp mill workers agree to a new contract

Catalyst pleased to have reached a four-year agreement

Workers at the Crofton pulp mill have agreed to a new four-year contract.

No details of the collective agreement have been released. A statement from Catalyst Paper that owns the mill indicated the company is pleased to have the contract ratified.

“We worked hard to achieve a negotiated agreement that recognizes employees’ contributions and reflects the changing realities of our business,” Catalyst’s statement reads.

“We believe it is a fair and competitive agreement, and we will continue to focus on ensuring Crofton is a safe, efficient and productive mill, and an employer of choice for current and future generations of workers.”

No comment was offered from the union side. The mill employs 400 workers in maintenance and operations, who belong to the Public and Private Workers of Canada Local 2, with the remainder of the unionized workers at the mill on the paper side of the operation being part of Unifor Local 1132.
