74 WPS workers given layoff notices


Wisconsin Public Service Corporation leaders say 74 workers could be laid off next year, including 16 who work Weston. 

Leaders gave union members from Local 310 of the International Union of Operating Engineers a twelve month notice.

In a statement from the company, WPS Vice President of energy supply operations Terry Jensky said, "Given the uncertainty about existing and proposed air pollution regulations and the impacts they will have on the operations of our generation units, we believe it was prudent for both our employees and our customers, to notify Local 310 at this time of future layoffs." 

The layoff notices affect workers in Weston and Green Bay.
