This week, the Monarch Beverage Company submitted a WARN notification with the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. The notification explains that the company intends to perform a mass layoff and plant closure in Indianapolis. The address of the facility is 9347 Pendleton Pike. The layoff is the direct result of the loss of the company’s wine business and the subsequent closure of its Wine Division. It will result in the elimination of 94 positions.
76 people will be laid off. The layoffs are expected to occur on August 31, 2018. The company believes that the closure and layoffs will be permanent. The workers are not represented by a union. Therefore, bumping rights do not exist. The full WARN notification can be found here.
