US: PepsiCo to move "majority" of workers after warehouse closure
PepsiCo is to close its Salem, Oregon, warehouse next month
PepsiCo has said most workers at one of its US warehouses facing closure will be found jobs at nearby facilities.
The warehouse in Salem, Oregon, employs 66 people and will shut down at the end of next month, PepsiCo announced yesterday (24 January). “The majority” of workers will be offered jobs at PepisCo's Portland and Corvallis facilities, a company spokesperson said.
Some workers will remain on the payroll until March, PepsiCo said, adding that the closure “was necessary for the long-term health of our business”.
