Excel Storage Products Closure Leaves 150 Unemployed in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania
"There are no jobs to go to in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania," said Mike Hellstrom, business manager for Laborers Local Union 108. "That is the real devastating part of it."
The union did not anticipate the closure, but Hellstrom says the company could have been forced into a receivership. Excel owes the union $500,000 for its welfare fund, and the union may take action against the company for not giving employees the federally required 60 days notice of the closure.
