    Potential layoffs in Clintonville
    WFRV News

    Story Updated: Oct 18, 2010 at 5:40 PM CDT
    Seagrave, a major employer in Clintonville, could be considering layoffs.

    There has been speculation for some time that the fire truck manufacturer could be considering layoffs, which would mean trouble for Clintonville.

    Currently, an informational meeting is going on at union headquarters with the AFL-CIO. They're discussing items like unemployment compensation, career transition services and support services.

    Seagrave's CEO were not available for comment. However, some workers, as well as Clintonville's mayor, have said some layoffs have already taken place. It is not known how many workers have--or will be--affected.

    The mayor says she's been hearing rumblings of layoffs for six weeks, but the company's CEO won't discuss the issue with her.

    Seagrave is one of the first major industries to come to Clintonville. The company builds fire trucks and is such an integral part of the community that the high school mascot is called The Truckers.

      I'm not suprised by this. Their pricing on bids lately has been amazing.

          I think a lot of companies appear to be downsizing or consolidating their operations to I assume try and weather the storm, I think everyone got a bit big for their own good and are now dumping and trimming the fat so to speak.

                With the reduction of the FDNY sales, no wonder they are doing this. Plus their prices generaly run a little higher than others. Of course the City of New York hasn't helped either with the tight and sometime strict bid process.



                Another great soon to be down the tubes!!

                Stay Safe and Well Out There....

                    A wise ol' Owl said almost two years ago, that a professional at cutting and slashing was being brought in to maybe "close er up".......and that's a quote.

                    The pattern matches perfectly so far, especially when business is turned away because the bottom line isn't profitable enough, for some.
