Body

Virginia Senator Mark Warner said he will try to convince International Paper not to shut down its plant in Franklin. One thousand one hundred jobs are hanging in the balance.

Workers at the Franklin plant come from both Virginia and North Carolina.

The world’s largest maker of cardboard box materials announced plans last week to cut 1,600 positions in four states as it copes with diminished demand.

International Paper’s Reigelwood plant will not be affected.
