Email News Alerts

United Steelworkers Local 11-63 will have a vote this week on a proposed contract with Cloquet's Sappi Fine Paper, a week after it authorized a strike if the mill and union could not come to an agreement.


USW Local 11-63 President Brady Nelson confirmed Monday night that workers will vote Friday on a "revised tentative agreement." Nelson would not elaborate on how talks led to a contract on which to vote.

Sappi employees have been working without a new contract since May.
