SKOWHEGAN — Millwrights in the machinists union at the Sappi North America paper mill in Skowhegan have voted to accept a new three-year contract, avoiding a strike that would have begun Friday.

Members of Local 2740 of the International Association of Machinists voted overwhelmingly Thursday evening to ratify the new contract, according to a news release from the Maine AFL-CIO.
