Company Talks Update

Just a quick update to let you know what has been going on. The wage delegates have met the last couple of days working on the package to present to the company. We will continue to work on this Monday. On Tuesday, we will be visiting Crofton Division to try and gain an understanding of what flex looks like there and also how the Point of Use Vending Machines work in that mill.

The object of all of this is to try and put together a deal that will provide sufficient packages to take care of everyone affected by the company's downsizing. As you can imagine, this is not an easy task, but I believe that progress is being made.

Have a good weekend.


  1. What is point of view vending Machines? Does this replace stores? grumpy cep 1119

  2. I believe these vending machines are for the common, everyday items like gloves, flashlights, PPE,etc. It is not supposed to replace mill stores but that is one of our issues that we hope to gain more information about in our visit to Crofton. The big concern for us is that it will cost a couple of jobs down the line. Of course, we would like to avoid that.
