Central Falls Seeks To Save Light Bulb Plant
Central Falls mayor James Diossa has called a meeting for Monday to see if the city can keep the Osram Sylvania plant open. The lighting manufacturer plans to shutter the plant in September.
When the Osram Sylvania plant closes, 88 employees will lose their jobs. The company is one of the city’s top three property taxpayers and Diosa wants to talk with officials to see if there’s a way to keep the plant open. Meanwhile the state’s Department of Labor and Training is ready to deploy its Rapid Response team to meet with affected employees at the plant. The team will give employees information about unemployment and training opportunities.
