Steel Mill Lays off 28
By Carrie Pond
Calvert City, KY – After cutting 26 jobs in January, Calvert City-based Gerdau Ameristeel will lay off another 5 percent of its employees. The Paducah Sun reports the steel mill begins reducing its workforce by 28 starting Friday. The employees were a part of a local chapter of the United Steelworkers. The cuts leave 101 USW members at the plant. The workers have 24-month callback rights, but would lose that privilege if they accept severance packages.
