BATON ROUGE – Flint Energy Services Inc. and Jacobs Technology Inc. have issued notices to the Louisiana Workforce Commission under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) announcing a plant closure and mass layoff.
Flint Energy Services Inc., an AECOM company operating in Haynesville, La., plans to permanently close on Jan. 15, 2016, resulting in 55 layoffs. LWC’s Rapid Response team is coordinating the delivery of re-employment services to all affected employees.
Jacobs Technology Inc. failed to win renewal of its contract with NASA to maintain and operate the Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans. The company’s current contract expires Jan. 31, 2016, which will result in the termination of 195 positions. Jacobs is working to transition as many employees as possible to comparable jobs with the new contractor.
LWC Rapid Response staff is on-site providing re-employment services and will continue to work with any Jacobs employees who are not retained by the new contractor.
