NORPAC closing Salem plant, laying off 900 workers

More than 900 workers in Marion County will be left without a job come January, after farmer’s cooperative NORPAC sent a layoff notice to employees of the Salem plant on Wednesday. The layoffs will also impact workers at the cannery in Brooks.

The closure will start on Jan. 12, but seasonal workers will be let go starting this week, according to the worker adjustment and retraining notification sent Wednesday.

John Asher, a rapid response coordinator at the Office of Workforce Investments, said there are two sessions planned for Dec. 3 to give workers services and information, like unemployment insurance and job skills.

Asher said most Salem residents know someone who’s worked at the Salem plant, which had been around for nearly 100 years.

NORPAC filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in August with debts of more than $100 million, according to court filings.

1. Pay attention to Trump when he says the economy is going down the drain if he is not reelected.

2. All this winning.

I hate that these people are losing their jobs but I bet 90 percent of them voted for the orange menace.
