Clearwater Paper has said it expects to layoff upwards of 100 staff at its Lewiston, Idaho-based mill.

The move is in a bid to restructure the company’s tissue operations amongst tough competition in the consumer tissue market.

A spokeswoman for the company said: “We are restructuring our Lewiston tissue operation to align with changing market conditions, which include a reduction in conventional tissue volume as a result of increased competition in the consumer tissue industry.

“We are currently working with the union through this process and will have more details at a later time.”
