Georgia Pacific workers strike at MS plywood, resin facility [From the web]
TAYLORSVILLE, MS, March 29, 2018 (WMC) -Members of Carpenters Local 2086 are on strike at Georgia Pacific’s facility in Taylorsville over scheduling issues, according to union representative Marcus McLaurin.
The workers started striking at 11 p.m. Wednesday following 12 months of negotiations regarding scheduling, McLaurin said.
“Employees can’t schedule vacations or know when they are off. It’s just unfair,” said McLaurin.
"We don't know when we will see our family. We can't go on vacations, because we don't know our schedules. They can call you in and off vacations. We can't live like that," said Carpenters Local 2086 Vice President James Keys.
