Iowa Workers Have Shots At Regaining Tyson Jobs

January 20, 2014, 10:09 AM

CHEROKEE, IA -

The 60 workers who lost their jobs at the Tyson plant in northwest Iowa's Cherokee could return if business were to pick up and more production were needed.

After Friday's layoff, the plant still employs about 500 people. The plant produces deli meats.

Tyson spokesman Dan Fogleman says the company will be working with the 60 to see whether they meet job requirements for openings at Tyson's other northwest Iowa plants. And, he says, jobs also could open up with normal attrition at the Cherokee plant.

Tyson finished an expansion at the Cherokee plant in 2010 after it shifted production from an Oklahoma plant. The Cherokee plant has lost a couple hundred jobs in recent years.
