The Pulper - CEP 1129 May 2006 Issue
Do We Support Task Force On P&P Industry Crisis?
We have finally received from the CEP Western Region Office a guesstimate on how much it cost each member to fund a membership-based task force on the crisis in Canada’s pulp and paper industry.
Over the next few months, it is supposed to come up with some recommendations for how the CEP Western Region can combat the growing number of partial and total mill closures in the pulp and paper industry. (For more information, see the April issue of The Pulper.) Dates for the meetings in question have not yet been set.
But the Western Region office has designated two staff members to help facilitate and support the task force, once it gets going.
Also, on May 8 Western Region Vice President Dave Coles sent out a survey to all Locals seeking basic information the task force can use in its deliberations. Your Executive will be filling this survey out and returning it by the May 31 deadline.
