    Pros

    pay is union negotiated and good if you can get work

    Cons

    Union breaking seems to be the plan. Company pits it's mills and unions against each other in an effort to break contract pattern. No jobs, no future,

    Advice to Management

    Respect the people who make your product. Note, we do not control the CDN vs US $ .

    Great place to work if you've only got a few years left to work and want to retire on Van Isle.

    Pros

    You get to live on Vancouver Island and work in a company full of great people to work with. The most cooperative atmosphere I've ever worked in, very few ladder climbers and a stable, low-turnover workforce.

    Cons

    The company is in a sunset industry and has not invested the necessary capital to make their mills competitive. As a result they are continuous shutting down non-competitive equipment. This leads to the constant fear that there is another downsizing coming around the corner so you cannot make any long term life plans, are afraid to buy a house in town and always have one eye on the classified ads. This is not a concern if you're financially set and only a few years away from retirement, but for younger folks trying to make a life it is not viable.

    Advice to Management

    Make the cuts hard and fast then invest in the remaining assets to make them competitive.
