Much needed good news for Massena this evening. Alcoa East announced it’s holding a press conference tomorrow morning. According to the Watertown Daily Times, the aluminum will reopen the plant after a two year layoff:
David W. LaClair Jr., president of United Steelworkers Local 450, is meeting with Alcoa representatives this afternoon to confirm the news.
Mr. LaClair said he understands that approximately 100 employees laid off when the plant was idled in March 2009 will be returning back to work…
“Of course we’d be very thrilled an excited,” Mr. LaClair said. “It’s great news for Massena and the surrounding communities. It’s something that Massena needs.”
