Labour peace will last nearly five years at Domtar Corp.'s Kamloops pulp mill after workers voted to accept a deal.
Members of Communication, Energy and Paperworkers Union Local 10b voted 87 per cent in favour of a deal recommended by the bargaining committee.
Union president Murray Matheson said a large majority of the membership turned out to vote in two ballots Tuesday.
The deal came after a strike vote last week. The pattern agreement first signed by CEP with Canfor in Prince George provides lump sum payments of $3,750 in each of the first two years, followed by two per cent, 2.5 per cent and three per cent. It expires in 2017.
