Makes sense!
That would save some money this quarter which is Henessees last, so he would get a final bonus while everybody else gets the shaft!

It'll be shutdown within a year. They're going to ring every last dollar out of thar place and then shut it completely down and split the operations between the Texas and China plants. I heard this from a reliable source.
nah.

They've been shutting this place down since I came to work there almost 8 years ago. I don't believe anyones reliable source at this place. More lies come outta there than metal. It's not shutting down anytime soon folks.

The EPA asked SM last week to present a contingency plan for what they would do if the plant property was declared a "brownfield site". The writing's on the wall.

if there really is going to be another round of layoff you will probably hear it on the news before you they let them know at the plant when the first round of people were laid off most of them knew about it when they came into work and saw that the job that they were bid on being run on overtime the next week. It seems like it would be a good business practice to give workers a little notice but that is not the case at Special Metals.

The plant in Burnaugh Kentucky notified the union today that 23 people would be laid off on Monday.

that seems like a bad sign there, when workers were laid off this time it said in the news that Special Metals were permanently laying off when in the past the new said that they were temporarily laying off employees, I found that to be strange. Also right before the layoff I saw this on Huntingtonnews.net

Probably between 75 and 250. I look for the plant to close soon. This isn't good.

I hear there is a big meeting Monday about ALL maintenance being outsource. There will be no more in house maintenance. What's this place coming to?

We have all ready started, we are in our third phase of the maintenance re-structuring. There will be two more plant wide layoffs consisting of 172 hourly employees, each time we will incorporate a large portion of maintenance employees into production where they are needed. We are going to keep 15 maintenance employees for two quarters to help familiarize the new maintenance contractors when they arrive. These are hard times and with the savings we expect to make this may help to keep the doors open for a while longer.

lay off 172 times $40,000 average salary equals $6.8 million!!
Isn't that how much they wanted to save this quarter??
