Since the beginning of the month, the State of Tennessee has received WARN notifications from three companies. On October 2, 2017, Conduent Commercial Solutions notified the state that it would soon be laying off 94 workers. M. Block and Sons submitted its own WARN notice on October 12, 2017. That company announced it would be laying off 50 workers. On the same day, the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development received a WARN notice from Global Personnel Services Inc.
Global Personnel Services confirmed that it would be closing its facility located at 3312 NW Keith Street in Cleveland, Tennessee. As a result of the closure, the company will also be permanently laying off 202 employees. None of the employees are represented by a collective bargaining agreement. Therefore, they will not have bumping rights. The closure and layoffs will be effective on December 10, 2017.
