Union officials at Rumford's ND Paper Mill are concerned about a new restructuring plan that they say could lead to hundreds of layoffs.

Gary Hemingway, the president of USW Local 900, says mill workers were informed last week that more than 120 workers could lose their jobs as part of a plan to move away from producing lines of paper for printing and writing, as the company says demand has "plummeted" during the pandemic.
