No progress at Finch, Pruyn.
The strike already has sparked two complaints of unfair labor practices with the National Labor Relations Board, with one union alleging that Finch Pruyn failed to bargain in good faith and tried to intimidate or coerce union employees. LaBrum said more charges may be coming. There is no sign that the strikers are weakening in their position against the company, LaBrum said. Unemployment insurance will kick in after six weeks on strike, and of the 600 strikers, no one has crossed the picket line, he said.
The mill has boon kept running using temporary and 270 salaried workers. On August 6, 2001, the plant put its third paper machine back into operation, bringing the mill up to 80% of capacity.
