Third Round of Layoffs in Order for Viracon
November 20, 2009
Last week at its plant in Owatonna, Minn., Viracon implemented a
workforce reduction of 80 full-time employees; approximately half
were voluntary, Christine Shaffer, Viracon's director of marketing,
confirmed to USGNN.com. "The number accounts for 6 percent
of the Owatonna workforce," she adds.
Viracon has now laid off more than 300 employees since January of
this year, when it announced it was reducing its workforce by 250
people-about 15 percent (CLICK

off nearly 100 workers (CLICK
