There's at last some good news on the job front.
An early Christmas present for 50 Rotorua timber workers, who last week thought they were going to be made redundant.
Carter Holt Harvey had previously announced a plan to cut around 70 jobs at two plants at Rotorua and Tokoroa.
But, an 11th hour deal has been reached, seeing Carter Holt Harvey sell their Rotorua plant to Wood Profiles Limited, saving all the jobs previously thought to be lost.
EPMU national industry organiser for timber, Ron Angel says the work done to save the jobs is fantastic.
