Truck Loggers Association meet in Port Alberni

The Truck Loggers Association is holding a regular board of directors meeting today (April 7) in Port Alberni.

A regular board of directors meeting is being held today in Port Alberni for the Truck Loggers Association. The Association is in support of its 22 members operating in the Alberni Valley recognizing those who have been negatively impacted by the rate dispute between Island Pacific Logging and Western Forest Products.

Last month, Western Forest Products sent home mill workers because of a log shortage. The United Steelworkers have moved towards legal proceedings against WFP.

“Despite quarterly earnings double what they were a year ago, WFP continues to squeeze independent, local companies,” said TLA Executive Director, David Elstone in a press release from the Association. “and now in addition to laying off its mill workers, it is not putting its logging employees to work while asking for concessions in an effort to further bolster its bottom line rather than sharing some of its profit windfall.”
