IP on Job Relocation

Some jobs are going away, and today an International Paper spokesman told Savannah's Downtown Rotary Club why. IP's moving its forest product division from Savannah to the company headquarters in Memphis. They're taking some of the workers with, but not all.

"There's a group not moving on to Memphis, Tennessee," said company spokesmen Rick Ouellette. "Unfortunately that happens in these relocations, but we're going to try real hard to find them other opportunities"

About 100 people will lose their jobs. But IP says it's trying to make the transition as smooth as possible.

The move to Memphis is next summer.
