Task force seeks alternatives to closing of mill.

Task force seeks alternatives to closing of mill

A task force made up of officials from Abitibi-Price Inc. and members of the Canadian Paperworkers Union began meetings on May 8 to determine if there are alternatives to the company's plan to close its Thunder Bay mill until the Northern American newsprint market improves.

Abitibi plans to cut its production capacity of newsprint by 250,000 metric tons, and the task force was given 10 days to find an alternative to closing the mill.
