Port Townsend: Severance package approved for bag plant workers

PORT TOWNSEND — Union members have approved a severance package for the 90 bag plant employees to be laid off by Port Townsend Paper Corp. in late December.

The union voted 121-8 last Friday in favor of a severance package produced by the company Nov. 3. The decision came after a single day of talks with the union which represents the workers.

Bag plant workers are represented by Paper Allied Industrial Chemical Energy Workers International Union Local No. 8-0175.

The severance package will provide between 35 and 40 hours of pay per year of service, Port Townsend Paper Vice President of Human Resources Chuck Madison said.
