Workers cut.

Abitibi-Price Inc. announced last month that it would lay off at least 70 woodland workers from its Thunder Bay area forestry operations because of declining demand for newsprint. The company's 200 woodland workers had been on strike for six months prior to reaching an agreement just days before the layoff announcement. The company stated that some of the layoffs will be permanent and that it will not resume cutting in the bush until the end of this year of the beginning of 1992.
