EAST STROUDSBURG, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania company that makes metal shelving has abruptly shut down operations and state officials say the manufacturer didn't give notice required by law.
Excel Storage Products closed down its East Stroudsburg plant on Friday afternoon, leaving about 150 workers out of a job.
Employees told the Stroudsburg Pocono Record they were called into the cafeteria and told to collect their belongings and a final paycheck. Severance pay was not offered.
State Department of Labor spokeswoman Sarah Cassin says Excel did not file a required Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification with the state.
Union representatives and workers gathered at the plant on Monday, but no company officials met with them.
The company did not immediately return a phone call from The Associated Press on Tuesday.
