Mosaic Forest Management has announced its intention to resume operations, ‘with the priority being on a safe return and with due consideration to provincial health guidelines related to the COVID-19’ pandemic. Mosaic hopes that most of their nearly 2000 contractor workers will be back on the job in the weeks to come. According to Mosaic, logs will “start to flow to local mills, supporting thousands more jobs.” The company says market conditions will be monitored going forward and adjustments “will be made accordingly.” In prepared remarks, Mosaic’s president and CEO, Jeff Zweig said, “This has been a very difficult time for all of us including our many contractors, partners, families and communities. We join them in looking forward to a return to full operations. Mosaic remains committed to continuing to work with government, as well as our customers, contractors and labor partners to create a viable, competitive Coastal forest sector that recognizes all producers must achieve a reasonable return on their investment.”
