Were you recently laid off be EaglePicher? The company did another round of layoffs last week, eliminating another 39 jobs. 17 people were let go from the Pittsburg facility, and the other 22 were let go from facilities in Joplin, St. Louis, and Rhode Island.
Company officials say the cuts were necessary due to a decline in sales. Those employees did receive severance.
The Workforce Investment Board is hosting a layoff relief meeting at 1 o’clock today for those that were let go from EaglePicher. Just show up at the Missouri Job Center at 730 S. Wall in Joplin.
