An information session and a strike vote are expected to be held today and tomorrow for Canadian Kraft Paper workers. According to a letter from Unifor the Union Canadian Kraft Paper has refused to listen to the demands of the workers or give any wage increases.


Unifors letter also said the company is insisting that they take a 10 percent wage reduction over the next three years; However a press release from Canadian Kraft Paper said that this isn't true and they are not looking for a 10 percent wage rollback.


The release from Canadian Kraft Paper also stated that they are committed to the collective bargaining process with Unifor local 1403 and that the negotiated agreement is achievable.


It is not known where the session and strike vote will be taking place and we will keep you up to date on whether or not the workers chose to strike or not.
