Barge building facility rescinds layoff notice
The Trinity Marine facility in Brusly will remain open, the Louisiana Workforce Commission (LWC) announced on Thursday, Oct. 1.
The company issued a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notice (or WARN) on Aug. 20 to notify the public and some 282 employees that Trinity Marine Products Inc. would begin laying off its employees on Friday, Oct. 23 through the end of the year for a “permanent plant closing.”
Officials with the company recently obtained a contract that will permit the facility to remain open, the LWC reported. All of the 282 employees are expected to be retained.
