Workforce Team To Help Cherokee Tyson Workers

July 28, 2014, 2:44 PM

Workforce Team To Help Cherokee Tyson Workers
DES MOINES, IA -

Gov. Terry Branstad says a team of state workers from Iowa Workforce Development will head to Cherokee to help hundreds of workers losing their jobs when the Tyson Foods chicken processing plant closes in September.

Tyson announced Friday it would close the plant resulting in a loss of 450 jobs.

Branstad, at his weekly news conference Monday, said the plant closing is a disappointment.

He says the state has a special team that helps workers in mass layoffs assess retraining possibilities and search for other work.

Branstad says the Iowa Economic Development Authority will help Cherokee recruit potential employers to replace the jobs being lost.

His Democratic challenger, Sen. Jack Hatch, says Branstad should reopen the workforce development office he closed in Cherokee and 35 other locations in 2011.
