GREEN BAY — Georgia Pacific Consumer Products informed the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development Thursday that it will eliminate 89 shipping operations positions at its Green Bay facility.

According to the notice, the company anticipates eliminating the positions at 1919 South Broadway between April 13 and April 26. The DWD will work with Bay Area WDB staff to assist the affected workers.

Georgia Pacific said in its letter to DWD that it will be outsourcing the shipping operations positions. The company said it will work closely with affected employees “to minimize the impact of this business decision.” The employees do not have bumping rights.
