Lajambe Forest Products Ltd. of Sault Ste. Marie laid off 70 workers in its veneer mill and 25 in its sawmill last month because of the recession, the high Canadian dollar and wet weather. The company employs a total of 250 people, but has been plagued with problems over the past year. Salaried and unionized workers previously agreed to take pay cuts which could last for 14 months. The layoffs in the sawmill could end if weather conditions improve, while employees in the veneer mill could be off until spring.
