Noranda to Lay Off 100 Workers

Noranda Jamaica Bauxite has reportedly served formal notice of upcoming lay-offs to some 100 workers.

Workers in Discovery Bay, St. Ann are expected to be impacted.

The company is downsizing as a result of the closure of one of its buyers in Texas.

Sherwin Alumina, which purchases alumina from Noranda, is closing its facility in Corpus Christi.
