Sherwin-Williams to lay off workers in Andover

By KNSS Radio

More lay-offs are affecting workers in the Wichita area.  The Sherwin-Williams manufacturing plant in Andover announced on Friday they will be laying off twenty-four workers.

KSN News reports the Machinists Union says the two week notices came as a surprise.  Friday, Jan. 31, will be the last day for those who are affected by the layoff.

The United Way of the Plains says they will provide transition assistance for those in-need.

“We want to be there to be able and help when things really get tight for them and it gets into a serious situation when they’re looking at maybe their rent payment or their mortgage payment or their utilities,” said President and CEO at United Way of the Plains, Pat Hanrahan.

Anyone needing help can fill out the 211 information sheet online, and get connected with a wide range of resources and services.
