RR Donnelley Lays Off 200 WorkersMarch 2009
The News Tribune of Jefferson City reported that employees from all three shifts, estimated at more than 200 people, lost their jobs. If the employees were not given 60 days advance notice, the printer may be in violation of the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act, though exemptions exist.
It was the second time in less than a month that Donnelley had downgraded a Midwestern plant. In mid-January, the former Heartland Press plant set a March date for closure, putting 160 employees out of work.
