    Dear Mr. Chin,

    It is agreed between the pmiies, during the negotiating process, that the Company may continue the practice in effect at the signing of this Agreement for the purpose of "lumping product". However it is specifically agreed that in the event of a pending lay-off of any bargaining unit employee, the affected employees will be offered "lumping" work at his Classification pay outlined in Article 9 of the Agreement. Should Bargaining Unit employees refuse "lumping" work, the Company may use whatever means are available to do the "lumping" work required.
