EFAP Services

Kelly Sasaki has just emailed me the latest EFAP Services information. I have put a link to it in the sidebar so it can be readily accessible.

January Forward Look

The January Forward Look is up. Just click on the link to read it.

There has been some requests and discussions about returning to a printed, abbreviated Forward Look for distribution in the mill. Since there is a motion on the books to take the Forward Look 100% online, it requires a motion to go back to a printed edition. With that in mind there is an Executive Recommendation that proposes a trial period until June of an abbreviated Forward Look. This would be in the order of a 4 page edition featuring only submitted articles and not any of the extras found in the online edition. We will be dealing with this motion, and several others, at the General Meeting on Monday Night. In addition, we will be electing committees including the Safety Committee. So come on out and let your voice be heard.

In solidarity,

Pattern Agreement Link

I've added a link in the sidebar to the Canfor Pattern Agreement. I know many are interested in just what the agreement says and there was a link to it in an earlier post but for some reason I never got it up in the links section. So now it is. (It is a little over 5 mb in size so it will take a few seconds to download.)
