Public consultations on the replacement effluent treatment facility project at Northern Pulp in Pictou, Nova Scotia, closes tomorrow, Friday, November 8.
“We have one last chance to get our members, particularly our 23,000 forestry members, to write supportive comments and save 230 good-paying, rural, Unifor-members’ jobs,” said Jerry Dias, Unifor National President. “This replacement facility will be an improvement the community needs and will support more than 2,700 jobs in the forestry sector across the province.”
Members are encouraged to read the Member Guide to Submitting Comments in the Northern Pulp Environmental Assessment for a quick how-to, and read our campaign page at unifor.org/NSforestry for more details.
“Without this new facility, the mill will be forced to close,” said Linda MacNeil, Unifor Atlantic Regional Director. “Unifor solidarity is incredible and right now our members in Pictou need that support.”
