PACTIV cuts 29 workers at Chippewa Falls facility

Twenty-nine workers are without a job after some layoffs at PACTIV on Wednesday.

A spokesperson for the Chippewa Falls facility says the workers were notified Wednesday of the layoffs and will not be given severance packages.

She says the workers were all full-time, hourly production employees.

The move was made in order to align production with less customer demand. If it picks up again, the workers could be hired back.

PACTIV produces specialty packaging products for consumers and food service.

A total of 178 people will remain at the Chippewa Falls facility.
