APPLETON, Wis. (WBAY) – (Updates to fix the facilities are not plants, but storage and storage)
Nestle USA and Nestle Dreyer's Ice Cream announced a transition that will eliminate 126 jobs in Wisconsin, including more than 30 in Appleton.
Nestle USA informed the state that they are closing sites in Delavan and Sussex by the end of the year, ending 31 jobs on each of them.
Locations in Appleton and Medford will be partially closed, leaving 32 employees at each location.
The layoffs will begin on November 1st.
Nestle USA tells Action 2 News this is storage and storage transfer facility. In May, Nestle announced that it would move from a Direct-to-Store Delivery network to a storage model.
Appleton's layoffs are in retail and deep-frozen supply chain. Affected jobs include pre-sales representatives, merchandisers, delivery drivers and district sales managers.
Employees are not represented by a trade union.
Nestle says the number of workers affected may change.
