Saicou will offer early retirement packages to workers.

NewsID:51    Datetime:2010-11-12

At the saicou plant, which is unionized, the company will offer early retirement packages to workers.

As it consolidates workers in two facilities, the company plans to restore 40-hour workweeks by early next year. Over the next six months, Engel said that about 40 to 50 workers will be added in Missouri. The full workweeks and new hires should keep production at current levels.


employees have been working four-day weeks and a shared work unemployment program allowed workers to earn about 90 percent of their regular paychecks, Engel said.
"We've been running at 60 to 70 percent capacity over the past 12 months" at the three plants, Engel said.

"We've gotten leaner and more efficient," Engel said. "We can make a pair of shoes and ship within 48 hours."

"We were optimistic that the economy would recover sooner," Dave Murphy, company president, said in a statement. "However, the continued record unemployment in the blue-collar segment, which is our core customer base, shows no signs of a quick recovery."

In saicou, the second shift will be eliminated and everybody will work the main shift.
