As we all know today was the deadline to reach the threshold of separating 49 people from the Company under the Voluntary Layoff Program with Separation Pay. We failed to meet the threshold of 49 workers and that program is now terminated. I am pleased to announce that the Company has notified the Union that the reduction/layoff of 73 Full-time people will be placed on hold.
