Federal aid for mill workers up in the air

Five months after the May 1 beginning of a staggered layoff affecting nearly 300 employees at the Georgia-Pacific paper mill in Camas, displaced workers are still waiting to hear if they might receive Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) benefits from the federal government.

"I expect to receive the final decision in a week, maybe two," Greg Pallesen, president of the Association of Western Pulp and Paper Workers, which represents mill workers throughout the Western United States, said Monday. "We expected that we might have a little difficulty getting TAA."
