Tembec Calls For Government Intervention in Rail Strike
Temiscaming, Quebec, Canada, 21 February 2007 – Tembec today called on the Canadian government to take immediate measures to address the disruption caused by the current labor dispute at CN Rail.

"We are calling on the federal government to act now to restore normal rail operations," said James Lopez, Tembec president and chief executive officer. "The impact of this strike on Tembec, on the industry, and on communities all over Canada is increasing every day. Raw materials, particularly chemicals, are running low at some of our production sites, as are supplies such as diesel, which is critical to both our woodlands operations and to our ability to get much of our product out to market. This situation cannot be allowed to continue," he said.

"We are therefore urging the federal government to act and for Parliament, including all opposition parties, to cooperate to ensure an early settlement of this damaging strike," Lopez said.

Tembec is a large, diversified and integrated forest products company. With operations principally located in North America and in France, the company employs approximately 9000 people. Tembec's common shares are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol TBC. Additional information on Tembec is available on its website at www.tembec.com
