To deny the latter doesn't exist either would be putting on the blinders big time.PBMcGinnis wrote: ↑Tue Jun 11, 2019 11:34 am WATCO crews will get paid significantly cheaper (non-union potentially) wagesTruly spoken like management. Those jobs belong to the men who have been servicing that mill for many years now. It is an absolute disservice to the employees if Pan Am really didn't bid. Internally I've heard they did but who knows.
End of the day, ND made the decision and Pan Am has enough crew needs elsewhere that the displaced won't be impacted significantly. If those crews really want to stay in Rumford they can apply to Watco, who knows it could work if anyone decides to stay as well.
