USGNN Original StoryViracon Reports That Plants Are Running

Viracon in Owatonna, Minn., has issued a statement regarding an article that appeared on a January 8 KEYC News report (CLICK HERE for original story):

Viracon communicated to employees the week of January 5th a reduction of approximately 250 positions at the Owatonna facility, 15 percent of the Owatonna workforce. The announcement came after Viracon informed employees at meetings in December that workforce adjustments would be necessary in responses to the changing economic environment.

Every effort was made to avoid a workforce reduction, including idling the three production facilities for brief periods of time. Contrary to the video coverage by KEYC Fox 12, all three Viracon plants are currently running full-time production, Monday through Friday.
