Donnelley Closing Colorado Plant, 177 Jobless

GREELEY, CO—An RR Donnelley plant here has given 60 days’ closure notice to its employees, a move that will leave 177 workers without jobs, according to the Greeley Tribune. The workers were told of the decision during a meeting Wednesday morning.

Quoting an anonymous former employee, whose relative was also among the workers given notice, the Tribune reported that the economy and a decrease in telephone directory use were among the reasons given for the shutdown. Printed directories represent a lion’s share of the work done at the plant, according to the Tribune.

The plant, built in 1984, was originally called Norwest Inc. before it was acquired by Donnelley, the paper said.
