The Nation : Paper Mill Strike Spreads

July 10, 1986

A strike by 7,500 pulp and paper workers against Weyerhaeuser Co. spread to five mills in Oregon and Washington, and the company said it would seek a court injunction to stop what it called illegal picketing. Most of the 2,000 workers at the five mills refused to cross the picket lines set up by members of two unions that struck Weyerhaeuser June 16. The pickets disrupted mill operations in Everett, Cosmopolis and Longview, Wash., and at Springfield and North Bend, Ore. The unions, which struck the company rather than accept a $4 per hour wage cut, rejected a modified offer this week.
