Check out the latest news below from our Wood workers:
On Monday it was announced that wood processor Southern Cross Forest Products had gone into receivership.
The wood sector union is hopeful that jobs may be retained at a Dunedin based wood processing company.
One week after being advised that any payment before Christmas was unlikely, the receivers of Tachikawa Forest Products have advised the union for former workers at the sawmill on Friday evening that a payment has now been confirmed.
Another forestry worker has been killed - the second death in a week and the ninth this year despite a Government crack-down on the industry.
