Georgia-Pacific Crossett Mill could lose up to 20 jobs

Posted: Updated:

The Georgia-Pacific paper mill in Crossett could eventually lose up to 20 jobs sometime in November as one of the mill's paper machines is shuttered. 

Georgia-Pacific Public Affairs Manager Teresa Walsh says the 1930's era uncoated free-sheet machine will be phased out during October and November - the company has been holding meetings with employees who will be affected by the shutdown. 

Walsh says the mill, which employees 1,300 union workers, still has seven machines in operation, and that in the past decade Georgia-Pacific has invested over $600 million dollars in new equipment. 

Walsh says through attrition and retirement, affected workers could be relocated and retrained within the mill.
