A New Round of Massive Layoffs Now Hits Pennsylvania

A new round of massive layoffs now hits Pennsylvania as more businesses file WARN notices advising of upcoming job cuts.

It’s important to note that under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, an employer with more than 100 full-time workers must provide a 60-day notice before laying off 50 or more people at a single site.

Two notices were recently filed this week with the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry.

TE Connectivity, which produces various products, including antennas, tools, wire, and other hardware, is closing a facility in Waynesboro, resulting in 130 employees losing their jobs on May 1.

“We understand the impact this plan will have on the employees at the site and we will be providing severance pay, benefits continuation and outplacement services to assist them in the transition,” said Jeff Cronin, a Communications Manager with TE Connectivity.

Ornua Ingredients, a processed cheese manufacturer, also filed a WARN Notice with the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry to notify the state that it is closing its manufacturing plant in Slippery Rock. 

As a result of this closure, 66 will be impacted.

Below is a list of businesses that have filed WARN notices advising of upcoming layoffs in Ohio this year:

  • Ornua Ingredients, Inc. 66 job cuts filed on 3/1.
  • TE Connectivity. 130 job cuts by 5/1.
  • NexTier Completion Solutions, Inc. 104 job cuts by 4/13.
  • Schenker, Inc. 478 job cuts by 3/10.
  • Merck & Co., Inc. 5 job cuts by 3/15.
  • Block, Inc. 22 job cuts by 3/30.
  • Newbold Services, LLC. 294 job cuts by 3/5.
  • Peterson Farms dba Appeeling Fruit Holdings. 68 job cuts by 3/8.

Market News Today – A New Round of Massive Layoffs Now Hits Pennsylvania.

A massive restaurant now makes an unexpected closure after the company’s CEO hinted of 41 shutters in the future.

Customers at Outback Steakhouse are devastated to find out their local restaurant is closing down, reports The-Sun.

The parent company, Bloomin’ Brands Inc, is in the process of closing a total of 41 locations nationwide.

Customers at the Outback in Kentwood, Michigan, have been disappointed to learn their local eatery has closed down for good.

A note on the door thanks customers “for the years of support.”

All Outback signs have already been torn off the restaurant, which is situated next to a Dave’s and Busters.

Many regulars are sad that they will now have to drive a lot further to order a Bloomin’ onion and other menu favorites.

‘Nooo!” wrote one on Facebook, adding: “That was my go-to location.”

One described it as “My favorite steakhouse.”

“That’s another Outback that’s closing. That’s horrible,” commented a third.

Outback is currently in the process of closing many locations across the country.

Aside from Outback, the parent company is closing restaurants including Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse, Bonefish Grill, and Aussie Grill.

Bloomin’ Brands CEO David Deno told investors last week that the company had decided to close its “predominantly older, underperforming restaurants.”

He said most of these locations were “older assets with leases from the 90s and early 2000s.”

In some states, the closures have left customers with zero Outback Steakhouses left.

In Hawaii, all three Outback restaurants shut down February 18.

A worker at the Waipio location told KHON2 that staff had been given just “two days” notice of the closure.

The same week, Outback closed down its final location in New Hampshire.
