Catalyst Paper is merging management at its Crofton and Port Alberni mills.

Catalyst Paper is merging management at its Crofton and Port Alberni mills.

The move comes as part of the companys previously announced workforce reduction plan that will see the eventual shedding of 300 positions in 2007. This reorganization will cut 37 jobs at Port Alberni, in both administrative and staff capacities. The cuts will be made through attrition, transfers to other divisions, early retirements and layoffs.

Employees have worked hard to make these mills more efficient and have improved performance significantly, Ron Buchhorn, senior vice president of operations said. And we will continue to take the steps necessary to keep pace with the markets and strengthen our position in the paper grades we make. Our competitors are certainly not standing still.

In addition to the management changes, Catalyst is seeking property tax cuts from the City of Port Alberni, and is looking to sell off surplus property at the mill site.
