Workers plan to ride out layoffs glad stones annual ski Swap today by John Pepin Marquette mining journal Palmer local steelworkers plan to sit tight and ride out the storm after an announcement that Cliffs natural resources could Lay off More than 300 Marquette Iron Range workers Early next year because of the ailing global Economy. Weave been through this before said Steve Laine president of steel workers local 4950 at the Empire mine. Its not Only Here its All Over. The Economy is in the toilet and All we can do is Hope it comes Back. Cliffs officials said thursday they had notified local officials and United steelworkers at the Empire and Tilden mines and the Hibbing Taconite and United Taconite mines in Minnesota of the potential for production curtailments and employee reductions. That notification is required 60 Days in Advance under terms of the . Department of labors worker adjustment and retraining notification act when there is a potential for layoffs of More than 50 employees for a period in excess of six months. Dale Hemmila Cliffs District Man Ager of Public affairs Michigan said the potential layoffs Are the result of the recent global economic Down turn. I think potentially were looking at some number in excess of 300 workers right now Hemmila said. With thursdays announcement the 60-Day countdown began slating any potential layoffs to occur after the turn of the new year. Currently there Are a total of 1,600 workers on the Marquette Iron Range. Hemmila said because of Range wide Union bumping agreements its difficult to say what the split would be in How Many workers would potentially be Laid off from the Empire and Tilden. Laine said that to him the number of possible layoffs right now is really irrelevant because the figure could change Given potential retirements and a rebound of the Economy before the layoffs would occur. In 60 Days it could change and they could Start production again Laine said. I dont think anybody expected such a fast downturn in this Economy. The Way it went so fast i think it could come Back. Production curtailments at United Taconite were announced last week
