Steelworkers and Mosaic Forest Management Reach Landmark Agreements

CROFTON, B.C. – United Steelworkers Local 1-1937 and Mosaic Forest Management have reached agreements-in-principle that will bring increased collaboration, flexibility and certainty for workers and the company across its South Island and Northwest Bay operations.

The agreements-in-principle include unionization of Mosaic’s two shipping facilities at the South Island Logistics Facility in Crofton and Island Terminals at Duke Point, Nanaimo.

The agreements-in-principle, which are still subject to finalizing definitive agreements, USW member ratification and corporate approvals, will also deliver improved job opportunities and long-term security for USW members; better operational flexibility relating to the movement of contractors, equipment and logs across Mosaic’s South Island operations and certainty for USW members and Mosaic through a renewed collective agreement at the Northwest Bay Operation near Nanoose Bay which will run until 2025.
