To The Eagle:
It looks like EGT Development’s Larry Clark made a very clever move in his quest to hire non-union workers at the Port of Longview.
This battle closely resembles a chess game, Larry’s latest move to hire a different union to man the work at the Port is an effort to pit one union against another.
Now, instead of focusing the ILWU’s efforts on EGT ‘s earnings, $2.5 million yearly, they created a distraction. Meanwhile, a CEO from a very large international based corporation has decided to change the way we operate here in Cowlitz County. Some things in Cowlitz County could use some change, I agree.
I would hope that the citizens of Cowlitz County would see this CEO from EGT is not looking out for the best interest of the residents of Cowlitz County. He’s looking out for EGT’s interests. Lowering our standard of living or pitting one Union against another, is just an attempt to cause hate and discontent. This is not the kind of change we need in Cowlitz County.
