GE reschedules closure of capacitor plant – again

Two years after the announced closure of its capacitor manufacturing facility in Fort Edward, New York, General Electric has set a new date for the closure and move of production.
A WARN notice, published back in October 2015, said that the closure would take place on January 23, 2016 and that it would affect 127 employees.

However, the facility is still opened. According to a report in the timesunion, when GE first made its plans public back in September 2013, the company wanted to shut down the plant by September 2014. But, the closure was pushed back to 2015, then to mid 2015 and then to January 2016.

Now however, another WARN notice has been filed stating that the plant will close on the 16th of April, 2016, and that the closure will affect 128 employees. Some layoffs have been postponed to occur between February 19 and March 31 of 2016, as some workers stay on to to finish shutting down the facility for the relocation of operations to Clearwater, Florida.
