OREGON LABOR REPRESENTATIVE TO TESTIFY ON TIMBER SUPPLY ISSUE BEFORE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE

OREGON LABOR REPRESENTATIVE TO TESTIFY ON TIMBER SUPPLY ISSUE BEFORE
 DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE
 A local representative from the Portland-based Western Council of Industrial Workers (WCIW) will discuss protecting jobs as well as endangered species before the Democratic National Committee (DNC) platform hearings. The hearings will take place at 8 a.m., Monday, May 18 at the Sheraton Cleveland City Centre Hotel, 777 St. Claire Ave., Cleveland.
 Teresa Taylor, a representative of the WCIW, and financial secretary of the local timber union no. 2554, based in Lebanon, Ore., will share her personal experiences as an Oregon timber worker in testimony before the Democratic Platform Committee. She is scheduled to speak at 4:30 p.m.
 In personal testimony, she will discuss her experiences as an unemployed worker and the effects that the protection of the Northern Spotted Owl has had on herself, her family and community. She has spent her working life in the forest-products industry and provides a unique and personal look at life as a forest product worker facing a very uncertain future.
 Also testifying will be Denny Scott, staff economist of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America, who will discuss the ripple effects of the Northern Spotted Owl controversy on the national economy as well as secondary industries.
 Taylor and Scott will argue for the need for a rational industry policy with full consideration for environmental and social impacts.
 Both will be available for interviews on Monday, May 18. For more information, call the contacts below.
 CONTACT: Jim Carey, 216-941-8099 or Beth Daina Birke, 202-452-9468, for the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America.
