Cascades Inc. says it no longer plans to close its containerboard mill in Trenton, Ont. — saving 130 jobs.

The Quebec-based paper and packaging company had said last month that the Norampac Trenton mill would close by June 1 due to unresolved negotiations with its unionized workers.

Cascades says mill employees have now ratified a contract that allows the plant to remain open.

The company's chief executive, Andre Depin, says the mill will still face challenges but Cascades can now work on a plan for its long-term survival.

The plant makes material used in corrugated packaging.
