Yahoo Finance reports:

More than 1,000 workers at another Tyson Food plant are out of work after the company announced it is permanently closing one of its Iowa facilities.

The move comes after the Arkansas-based company closed two chicken plants and announced job cuts last year and said four other plants were expected to cease operations within the first half of fiscal 2024, with related charges − at the time, expected to cost the company $300 million to $400 million.

On Monday Tyson announced it would shutter the doors to its Perry, Iowa pork-packing plant.

“After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to permanently close our Perry, Iowa, pork facility,” a company spokesman wrote in an email to USA TODAY Tuesday.

The small city of Perry is in Dallas County, about 40 miles northwest of Des Moines. Its population was just over 7,800 people at the time of the 2020 Census.

Tyson said it will encourage workers there to apply for other positions within the company as it still employs 9,000 people in Iowa, and it has pork facilities in Waterloo, Storm Lake and Columbus Junction.
