Kenora Forest Products is expected to restart in September. The news came late last night for union members. They also agreed to the improved terms of a six-year deal. Unifor spokesman Stephen Boon says they've approved a new contract with improved wages, benefits and pension provisions. The top wage will reach 36 dollars an hour, while the employer portion of the pension will increase by 67 per cent. They'd initially signed a contract last August. The restart would be the first action at the site in seven years. Prendiville Industries are also looking at construction jobs on the site, as they prepare buildings and equipment for the restart.
