VANCOUVER - The union representing workers at Canfor Pulp Ltd., says members at two mills in Prince George, B.C. have reached a tentative five-year deal with the company.
The Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union says the new contract includes increases in wages and benefits.
It also says the agreement will provide labour stability until 2017.
Union representatives are recommending that members approve the deal.
It says the agreement will serve as a pattern for the industry.
The Vancouver-based pulp and paper producer, which has its operations in the B.C. interior, was created several years ago when it was partially spun out as a separate business from Canfor Corp. (TSX:CFP).
