A potentially dangerous situation was avoided without incident when a bomb threat turned out to be neutralized by the Washington State Patrol Explosives Unit in Raymond last Wednesday afternoon.
It all started when a male resident showed up at the Raymond Police station with what he believed to be three small homemade explosive devices in the bed of his truck.
Months after their Collective Bargaining Agreement expired, Weyerhaeuser workers walked out on strike starting 12:01 a.m. Tuesday. The first sight to greet morning commuters going over the Willapa River bridge by the mill were strikers holding signs and waving. The last Weyerhaeuser worker strike was in 1986.
According to a press release from September 13 from President Directing Business Representative of IAMAW District W24 Brandon Bryant, "We have made the very difficult decision to withhold our labor from Weyerhaeuser, with a strike. Although we hope to continue to negotiate with the company, their delays have forced our hand to take this action. We hope to secure a fair offer that recognizes the hard work and dedication our members have given to their employer."
The strike participants include the mill workers, timberland operations, Weyerhaeuser truck drivers, log export yard employees and longshoremen in Washington and Oregon. Over 1,100 workers are being affected and they all belong to the International Association of machinist and Aerospace Workers (IAMAW) District W24 Union. The strike does not include management or anyone working on salary.
