In the Introduction to the book on p. 7 Tom explains:
“The ingenuity of our legal and political strategy reflected a new three-part model of labor, management, and government working together to revitalize a troubled industry and rekindle its potential, saving the kinds of jobs that helped build the American middle class in the first place.”
Tom will be joined by Tim Nixon and representatives of management and labor who were involved in the project to save the paper mill.
Professor Soren Hauge will moderate the panel.
