LSC Communications to Close Virginia Plant, 140 Impacted

LSC Communications workers and their families in Salem, Va., likely won’t be feeling very festive this Memorial Day weekend. That’s because Chicago-based LSC Communications filed a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Act Notification Act (WARN) notice May 22 that it intends to permanently close its Salem, Va.-based, 278,000-sq.-ft. book manufacturing facility in July and lay off the approximately 140 workers employed there. The notice also indicated that the layoffs are scheduled to begin July 23, and last during a two-week period.
