Tester bill would hold Imerys accountable for lockout

U.S. Senator Jon Tester

(U.S. Senate)—U.S. Senator Jon Tester is introducing legislation to hold France-based Imerys accountable for locking workers out of its jobs at its talc plant in Three Forks.

Tester’s bill, the Prohibiting Incentives for Corporations that Kickout Employees Tax (PICKET) Act, will eliminate tax breaks, deductions, and credits for corporations that lock out their workers during a labor dispute. Tester rallied with workers locked outside of the Imerys plant in Three Forks last month and vowed to take legislative action in the U.S. Senate.
