LONGVIEW (Oct. 21, 2022) — More than 1,100 Weyerhaeuser employees represented by IAMAW District W24 have been on strike since Sept. 13 against Weyerhaeuser, the nation’s largest forest products company.

The following was posted Friday by IAMAW District W24:

“Your Bargaining Committee has come to a tentative agreement on the final proposal from the Company. This is not everything that we wanted, but it is the best that is available, and it comes with a recommendation to pass. We are compiling, reviewing, and preparing the documents and the full details will be posted here and available at the Union Hall, Monday, the 24th.”

The union has scheduled contract votes Tuesday through Thursday, Oct. 25-27.
