#3 Paper Machine Update

The Company finally received the manning numbers that PIC require for the #3 Project. They are asking for 2 M/W's, 2 Welders, and 1 labourer for next week on 8 hr days, not the 10 hr day that was previously announced. These numbers are extremely disappointing and makes me a little intrigued as to just how the hell are these guys going to dismantle that machine with this number of people. We are going to have to be very diligent in monitoring this contractor and ensuring that they will not try to bring their own people on site. We have been assured by Ron Buchhorn that these contractors have been told that all work related to the dismantling of #3 will be done by our members.

  1. I'm guessing that contractors come on site to dismantle PM3 and the employer will hold that over us as part of the PM4 Startup Agreement.

  2. any idea what the Wednesday morning 8:00 a.m. meeting in the training centre is about?

  3. how about an update on talks with the company??????.theres been nothing for awhile now ,and we would like to know if there has been any talks going on and if any thing has been happening.
