Bracing for second round of USEC layoffs
PADUCAH, Ky. - Thousands of careers cut short. Even though one of our area's largest employers is shutting down one step at a time, that doesn't lessen the blow to families who look to USEC for their paycheck.
Company officials tell Local 6 nearly 100 of their union and non-union workers received notification Monday that they'll likely be laid off next week.
24 United Steelworkers' last day will be October 25. Their titles range from operator, to machinist, mechanic, and just about everything in between.
Approximately 75 non-union people will be laid off before the 25.
We don't have the department breakdown for those jobs, but in the end, no matter what employees did at USEC, they all face the same situation and are headed back to square one.
