MONTREAL — Tembec has reached a settlement with its Temiscaming Site employees – a four-year deal that expires in Sept. 2018 that ends a two-week long strike that the company says costs upwards of $5 million.

The strike has also delayed the Temiscaming Cogen project turbine by one month, which is now scheduled to produce contract power by mid-January.

The Temiscaming site employs 850 people of which 650 are unionized and comprises four main facilities manufacturing specialty pulp, high-yield pulp, multi-ply coated bleached board, phenolic resins and lignosulfonates.

Tembec is a manufacturer of forest products with operations in Canada and France.
