Deal for Domtar employees

Unifor national representative Stephen Boon confirmed three new tentative agreements were reached Thursday covering more than 500 members from Unifor Locals 105-1, 105-3, and 324 at Domtar's Pulp Mill and Woodlands Operations in Dryden.

“We are pleased to have reached solid new tentative agreements with Domtar that achieve Unifor's Eastern Canada Pulp and Paper Pattern,” Boon said.

'Snowflakes' given a fresh look

The “snowflake” decorations that line a few blocks of Scott Street each holiday season are getting a fresh look this year thanks to the BIA.

The group representing downtown businesses has been busy painting all 34 of the large, metal snowflakes red.

“We've been doing them for years,” noted BIA president Doug Cuthbertson.

'Novemberfest' deemed best yet

The local museum will be able to continue to provide top-notch workshops for another year thanks to the Friends of the Fort Frances Museum.

Their annual wine, cheese, and beer fundraiser gala, entitled “Novemberfest,” drew a full house of more than 100 people last Thursday evening and raised at least $4,000 with the live auction alone—about $1,000 more than last year.
