Corner Brook Pulp and Paper is eliminating 22 permanent positions at its newsprint mill in Corner Brook, Newfoundland, which the company says is a restructuring effort to keep labour costs down.

CBC reports that the affected workers will remain full-time but be reassigned as casual employees instead.

Kruger, parent company of Corner Brook Pulp and Paper, also announced a two-week shutdown commencing Dec. 24, which it says is a result of market demand for newsprint.

The 365 affected employees will return to production on Jan. 6, but Kruger says the shutdown may be extended over the winter.
