After being put on part time pay and required to use up PTO by June 15th, many employees were let go on July 15th. About 40 people were affected by the RIF that included mostly Engineers and Quality Control. There was a significant loss of long term employees with experience across many product lines. It is suspected that these lines will be moved overseas and that the remaining US based employees will also be let go in the next 12-18 months
Man that s—s.... I know quite a few people affected by the mandatory part time but haven't been told of any RIFs yet in our dept.
