CARLTON, Wis. - Layoffs from the shutdown of the Kewaunee Power Station in eastern Wisconsin are scheduled to start at the end of May.
The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development said it received notice that a series of layoffs at the nuclear plant will begin May 31. About 633 workers will lose their jobs.
Dominion Resources Inc. has said it will proceed with plans to close and decommission the plant. The Richmond, Va.-based energy provider hasn't been able to find a buyer for the plant.
The Department of Workforce Development said it is coordinating rapid response services to the closing with its regional partner, the Bay Area Workforce Development Board.
