Anti-dumping

The case began with a petition filed on January 22, 2015. The petitioners included a labor union (the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union) as well as four firms (Domtar Corporation; Finch Paper LLC; P.H.
