This week, Bayer U.S. LLC submitted a WARN notice with the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. The letter explains that the company will be permanently closing its Mishawaka facility. It is located at 3930 Edison Lakes Parkway. The closure of the site was originally announced on February 19, 2019 with an anticipated completion period of 18 months.
Impacted workers who are willing to relocate may seek out opportunities at other Bayer locations including those in Creve Coeur, Missouri and Whippany, New Jersey. The terminations are expected to begin within the 14-day period starting on November 8, 2019.
In total, the company anticipates that 172 workers will be impacted by the facility closure. The exact number is not available since some workers may agree to relocate to other facilities. The workers will be given a minimum of 60 days advance notice. They are not represented by a union so they will not have access to bumping rights.
