Members of IAM Local W484 attended Negotiation Preparation class on their days off Saturday and Sunday, February 8-9, 2019 in preparation for upcoming negotiations at the Potlatch saw mill in Warren, Arkansas. The training was set up by Woodworker Chief of Staff Mike Rose and Business Representative Kelvin Godwin.
“The negotiating committee was a mix of experienced and new members on the committee,” said Educational Representative Henry Bagwell. “They worked very hard all weekend and have a lot of homework to do.”
“I can’t believe what I have learned in two days,” said negotiating committee member James Ellis, a veteran of many negotiations. “We are better prepared than ever.”
The committee is working hard to bring the members of Local W484 a good contract.
