Resolute To Protect Fort Frances Mill

Posted on Sunday, November 30, 2014 06:59 AM

Calls from the union and the Fort Frances community are heard.

Resolute says it'll be heating the idle pulp mill in Fort Frances over the winter, in order to protect equipment.

The decision comes following discussions between the forestry company, the Wynne government, and Unifor.

Union president Jerry Dias says protecting the mill is an essential first step, as they explore options for its future.

It's been closed for more than a year.
