Morgan City business says layoffs on horizon

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — About 80 workers face layoffs in July at the Danos and Curole Marine Contractors’ fabrication division facility in Morgan City.

In a notification to the Louisiana Workforce Commission Thursday, the company said that the layoffs at its Amelia yard will occur between July 13 and July 27 because of “a significant downturn in business.”

The company says some employees will be transferred to other locations.

The state’s labor department said re-employment services are available for affected workers through its local Business and Career Solutions Center and LWC’s Rapid Response team.
