Out of the 171 jobs to be cut, more than 100 will be positions from among 207 workers forming Local 63 of the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers union.

George McDonald, Local 63 president, said the labourers, carpenters and finishers he represents are in disbelief.

'The only way you can run that mill, by cutting that local in half, is by bringing in a private contractor to do it,' McDonald said. 'These people deserve these jobs, they gave their life to this company.'
