$4,700 donation to locked out Grand Forest workers



    TIMMINS, ON, Jan. 24 /CNW Telbec/ - Members of Ontario's largest forestry
union, CEP, have collected $4,700 for the locked-out workers at Grant Forest
Products. The workers have been locked out since September 2006 over
concession demands and the refusal of Grant Forest Products to meet the
eastern Canadian sawmill and panel board pattern settlement.
    Ontario Administrative Vice-President Kim Ginter, along with former
Vice-President Cec Makowski and CEP National Representatives Rick Lamarche and
Richie Mihalick presented the locked-out workers today with the cheque today.

    CEP, the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada,
represents 150,000 Canadian workers in several key parts of the economy,
including more than 25,000 newspaper, broadcast, film and printing industry
workers.
