Tasmania's Legislative Councillors have indicated they will not be pushed into supporting the forest peace deal.
The Upper House is due to debate peace deal legislation next week and lobbying is gaining momentum.
Veneer company Ta Ann Tasmania is promising a new plywood mill in the north and more jobs if the deal passes.
If not, the company will pull out of Tasmania.
Windemere MLC Ivan Dean will not be swayed.
"There are more players in this than just Ta Ann," he said.
Federal Environment Minister Tony Burke warns hundreds of millions of dollars in Commonwealth funding is at stake if a decision is not made soon.
Upper House president Sue Smith says no member feels pressured.
"We expect everyone to come along and be frank and free with their advice," she said.
"We have no idea over the next week in the briefings what other pressures will come on.
"But I am confident both with the experience of the Legislative Councillors and their past experience before they came to this Parliament that they have a capacity to make a decision that will be appropriate at the end of the day." Timber Communities Australia member George Harris has accused other peace deal stakeholders of bullying MLCs.
"I like the idea that the Legislative Council is a fairly robust organisation and it's one of the few organisations on the planet that is pretty resistant to bullying," he said.
"And that's one thing that there's been a fair bit of just all the way through this; just selfishness and really unacceptable behaviour." Tasmanian TCA members had a phone hook-up yesterday with board members to protest against their decision to sign the forest peace deal, in defiance of the wishes of the rank and file.
It is understood the board is now reconsidering its position.
