Weyerhaeuser Co. will start laying off about 160 liquid packaging workers Tuesday, but everyone may be back on the job by Feb. 6, the Association of Western Pulp and Paperworkers said Thursday.
Company officials told the union of its plans this week.
The extruders, which are used to make laminate paper packaging, will be down from Tuesday through Feb. 5. The paper machine and lab will be down from Jan. 31 through Feb. 5, according to a letter to AWPPW members from Local 633 secretary Lowell Lovgren.
