Dynegy Lays Off 57 Danskammer Workers
Dynegy, the company that owns the Roseton and Danskammer electric generating plants in the Town of Newburgh, which is in the process of selling both, has laid off all but two IBEW employees at Danskammer.
A total of 57 workers got their pink slips a couple of days ago.
The company that is buying Danskammer is going to dismantle it. Another company is buying the Roseton plant and will continue to operate it for electrical generation.
IBEW Local 320 President and Business Manager John Kaiser said he is trying to have the Danskammer workers placed. (Mid Hudson News, 4/3/2013)
