About 100 Sunoco workers in Pa. get layoff notices
MARCUS HOOK, Pa. - February 15, 2012 (WPVI) -- Officials at a Sunoco refinery near Philadelphia say about 100 employees are being laid off at the end of the week.
The Delaware County Daily Times says the workers at the company's Marcus Hook plant in Delaware County were given layoff notices saying Friday would be their last day.
Sunoco spokesman Thomas Golembeski said Tuesday that the hourly employees were told not to return because the first phase of the plant decommissioning process has been completed. But he says the workers will be paid their wages through the end of the month.
Sunoco said last year that it would idle the refinery and lay off about 490 employees because of deteriorating market conditions. Another Sunoco refinery in Philadelphia is expected to close by July if a buyer isn't found.
