It's bad news for workers at the Domtar pulp mill in Kamloops.

The company is cutting back. It says because of economic conditions in the global pulp market, it is eliminating a production line in Kamloops.

The mill will cut its output by 30 percent, and permanently shut down the so-called "A-Line."

125 workers will be let go.

CBC's Samantha Garvey caught up with millworker Robert Shaw at the end of his shift Thursday.
