Ladysmith Sawmill, a PPWC division of Western Forest Products, has just negotiated and ratified an eight-year Collective Agreement.
Over the eight (8) years, the wages will be increased by 18½% with yearly bonuses. Changes to benefits and the Drug and Alcohol policy were also bargained.
This agreement is the result of our members’ collective desire to support a vibrant coastal forest sector that provides good, secure family-supporting jobs for years to come. We are pleased to conclude this agreement quickly and as a result of good faith negotiating between Western and PPWC.
