Since Premier Stephen McNeil introduced the Boat Harbour Act in 2015, Unifor has worked on behalf of its members at Local 440 Northern Pulp to facilitate the closure of the Boat Harbour effluent treatment facility while maintaining thousands of rural forestry jobs across the province. 

The legislated closure of Boat Harbour on January 31, 2020 is upon us and without another facility approved for the treatment of its effluent, Northern Pulp must close.
