NewPage To Lay Off Up To 100 Workers

WHITING, Wis. (AP) -- NewPage Corp. has notified state labor officials it plans to idle one of the Whiting paper machines in December, laying off 75 to 100 employees.

The Whiting mill has two paper machines and employs about 340 workers. The company says the length of the layoff will be based on the economy and customer orders.

The Miamisburg, Ohio-based NewPage announced in October that it planned to cut paper production by 160,000 tons in the fourth quarter.
