NewPage (Rumford, ME) Mill to Lay Off 120 Workers for a Week
NewPage paper company will temporarily lay off about 120 hourly maintenance workers (at its Rumford, ME mill) next week, mill spokesman Anthony Lyons said Tuesday.
A couple of years ago, the company idled some of its paper machines at Rumford Paper, temporarily laying off between 50 and 300 workers.
The latest layoffs come four months after NewPage cut 5 percent of its workforce nationwide. The cuts resulted in nearly four dozen mill workers from the Rumford mill losing their jobs.
