Longlac Wood Industries' mills have resumed production after being shut down for two months. When the company shut down its waferboard and plywood mills in November, officials said it was seeking wage cuts or major concessions before the mill would reopen.

The IWA-Canada Local 2693, which represents 400 workers at the two mills, remains strongly opposed to any concessions, a spokesperson says.

There is no word yet on whether a FedNor grant that was given to the community to offset the impact of the closures will be returned.
