OEM layoffs include 35 workers

By  | 

WOODVILLE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Almost three-dozen people at a business that creates parts for several types of manufacturers are out of a job.

OEM Fabricators says the 35 layoffs include workers from their four locations: Baldwin, Neillsville, Woodville, and Prentice. There's no word on how many workers from each plant, but the company says the layoffs happened a couple of weeks ago. There are also nearly ten workers who were laid off temporarily. The company says it's because of a slowdown in the construction, mining, oil, and gas industries.

OEM has a total of 420 workers at the four plants. The employees had taken pay cuts. The remaining workers will now receive their full wages.
