MONTREAL – Tembec and Unifor have signed a tentative agreement aimed at ending a strike that began Nov. 26 at its lumber mill in Temiscaming, Que.
Tembec (TSX:TMB) says the 650 unionized employees at the facility will vote on the four-year agreement Wednesday.
The forest products company also said the bargaining committee for Unifor Local 233 intends to recommend unanimously that its members approve the deal.
Tembec said it would not comment on the agreement until the workers vote.
The Temiscaming complex, which also employs about 200 non-union workers, manufactures an array of pulp products and other material.
The union and the company have been in negotiations since August 2014 to replace a four-year agreement that expired on Sept. 30.
Tembec has operations in both Canada and France. It employs approximately 3,500 employees and has annual sales of approximately $1.6 billion.
