The Union and Company met and started discussions on the potential of starting full capacity from Lines 1C to 5B and also to try and keep Line 7 & 8 operating. The Union’s position is simply that the Company should just hire full time positions. However, the Union is also prepared to discuss alternatives.
LINE 7 & 8 POTS AND WORK ASSIGNMENTS
The Company approached the President and Business Agent April 20th, 2010 with a Company presentation. We listened and understood but did not agree with the Company. On April 22nd, 2010 Company representatives come back with another revised presentation at which time the Union still never agreed to but understood.
