PORTAGE, Wis. — Energizer has told workers at its plants in Portage and Fennimore it plans to close both facilities in the next year or two, according to a union representing nearly 600 workers at the plants.

In a statement Thursday, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters said it is fighting the plans to close the facilities and move some operations to a nonunion plant in North Carolina and other jobs overseas.
