Thread regarding Tyson Foods layoffs

More layoffs

200 layoffs announced at Van Buren, AR plant on 03/05/18. Just 7 days after handing out one time $1000 bonuses, which were actually $620 after taxes. sad!

Bumped from an old thread for info. It's sad how many companies have done this in the past few months - hand out small bonuses to hide big layoffs that'll save much more than that. So much for tax-related job creations...

It's temporary

A "temporary layoff" will affect about 150 Tyson Foods workers in Van Buren because of operational changes at a chicken plant, a company spokesman said Wednesday.

Workers were notified Wednesday of the changes effective at the end of the month, Tyson spokesman Worth Sparkman said.

"Those impacted may be eligible to work at other locations in the river valley and Northwest Arkansas," Sparkman said. "We'll be assisting them with the application process."

The Tyson chicken-processing plant at 802 S. 28th St., employed about 1,000 workers as of 2016, according to the Van Buren Chamber of Commerce.
