Dec. 1, 2014 - Tembec — a pulp, paper and lumber producer — has ceased production at its Temiscaming, Que.-based lumber mill after 650 unionized workers went on strike late Nov. 26.

The company said the strike will delay the installation of a boiler and turbine at the mill, which was expected to be completed by mid-December.

The union and the company have been in negotiations since August 2014. A four-year collective agreement expired on Sept. 30.

It employs 3,500 employees and has annual sales of about $1.6 billion.
