THE COMPANY SAYS KING CAME TO SOUTH DAKOTA TO ADDRESS TEAM MEMBERS AT THAT FACILITY.

THOSE ARE WORKERS WHO WILL BE AFFECTED BY THE COMPANY’S DECISION TO CLOSE THE DUNES CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS, AND WHO MUST DECIDE IF THEY WILL MOVE TO SPRINGDALE, ARKANSAS TO WORK AT THE COMPANY’S MAIN HEADQUARTERS OR LEAVE TYSON.

SCOTT TYSON1 OC…LOSE THOSE JOBS. :31
