End of lockout at Alma Resolute Forest Products facility

CANADA (From news reports) - The lockout at Resolute Forest Products' Alma paper mill has ended.

The approximately 240 workers of the factory accepted on Friday afternoon by 81.3% the solution hypothesis presented to both parties by the conciliator of the case in the general assembly. The company also accepted this proposal.

The workers are happy with the result of today's (Friday) meeting. Obviously, no one wanted to continue on the picket line, at least until winter. Daniel Bilodeau reacted on the line.

The return to work will be gradual, starting September 18. Workers have been on strike since July 4. The company imposed this measure after a third production stoppage by employees.
