FOND DU LAC, Wis. – Mercury Marine will recall about 40 employees from layoff this month and all should be on the job by June 1, according to a story in the Fond du Lac Reporter over the weekend.
The workers will return to Plant 15, Mercury’s outboard assembly facility, and Plant 17, its castings operation. All should be on the job by June 1.
Erik Pope, Mercury’s communications coordinator, said the company must do recalls because it needs help meeting global demands. He went on to say that he wasn’t sure what spurned sales but did note that this is always the busiest time of year worldwide for the company, the newspaper reported.
Pope said Mercury has notified employees according to its contract with their union, International Association of Machinists, Local Lodge 1947.
Dennis Rooney, Mercury’s vice president of human resources, told the Reporter that both the union and the company are pleased with the recall.
“It’s a good situation for all involved,” he said.
