Workers at Woodland pulp mill may go on strike

BAILEYVILLE, Maine (From news reports) -- Workers at the Woodland Pulp mill say they are on the verge of a strike vote.

The mill in Baileyville, which is northeast of Bangor, makes wood pulp mostly for paper products.

The United Steelworkers, Local 27 says they are pushing for a better contract offer from the owners.

Union workers set up projected message "Fair Contract Now" on the side of the tissue mill Thursday night.

"All across this country, workers are leveraging whatever they can to better themselves and our members at Woodland are no different. We are trying to get the best we can for our families," said Michael Higgins, a staff representative for United Steelworkers of Maine.

In a statement, an official with the company said:

"Woodland Pulp remains optimistic that we can work with the committee to collectively bring these negotiations to an equitable and logical conclusion."
