Contract settlement at Domtar
Unionized workers at the Domtar pulp mill have ratified a new contract.
Murray Matheson, president of Communication, Energy and Paperworkers Local 10b, said the new agreement received 87 per cent approval from members during a vote on Tuesday, October 9.
Matheson said the majority of Domtar’s union members took part in the vote.
“There was a big turnout again,” he said.
The five-year deal is based on agreements first negotiated by Canfor workers in Northern B.C.
It will see members get lump-sum payments of $3,750 in the first two years, followed by wage increases of two, 2.5 and three per cent.
