An Inventory Restocking Recovery?????
ROCHESTER, MN (KTTC-DT) -- Just four days after a new contract agreement between cab manufacturer Crenlo and its employees, there's some unfortunate news for workers.
As we first reported at 10 p.m. Monday on KTTC NewsCenter, we have learned that there will be more lay-offs and most of the plant employees will be on unemployment for nearly a week.
The president of the union that represents Crenlo employees, David Zebaugh, says 33 employees will be laid off. Zebaugh says their last day will be Thursday.
Zebaugh says the laid-off employees were employees that were recalled in October and worked for three or four months--they will once again be unemployed.
But that's not the only news out of Crenlo Monday night. According to Zebaugh, most of the plant will be shut down from this Friday to next Friday. Out of the roughly 450 union workers, he says only 50 to 100 will be working.
Zebaugh says they have an over-abundance of inventory on some lines, so those lines will be shut down for 6 days.
Zebaugh says he's not happy about the plant shutting down for days, but says he was expecting it to be a longer amount of time.
IT APPEARS THAT THERE WILL BE MILLIONS OF UNHAPPY WORKERS IN UPCOMING WEEKS AND MONTHS.....expect lots of layoffs in the days, weeks, and months ahead.
