NewPage paper company will temporarily lay off around 120 hourly maintenance workers next week, that’s according to mill spokesman Anthony Lyons. Lyons told the Lewiston Sun Journal that the layoffs are a ‘cost containment and money-saving’ move.The workers will be off the job from June 17 to June 24.

The latest layoffs come four months after NewPage cut 5% of its nationwide workforce. Those cuts resulted in nearly four dozen Rumford mill workers losing their jobs.

The mill employs about 850 people.

In September 2012, NewPage filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and emerged from it in December 2012. NewPage is the leading producer of printing and specialty papers in North America.
