THE SIOUXLAND CHAMBER OF COMMERCE IS LOOKING TO HELP KEEP DISPLACED TYSON FOODS EMPLOYEES IN THE SIOUX CITY AREA WORKFORCE AND IN THE COMMUNITY.

LAST MONTH TYSON ANNOUNCED PLANS TO CLOSE DOWN THEIR CORPORATE FACILITY IN NEIGHBORING DAKOTA DUNES, SOUTH DAKOTA AND TRANSFER THOSE JOBS TO THEIR MAIN HEADQUARTERS IN SPRINGDALE ARKANSAS.

CHAMBER PRESIDENT CHRIS MCGOWAN SAYS HE AND OTHER LOCAL LEADERS HAVE REACHED OUT TO TYSON ABOUT THEIR DECISION TO CLOSE THE FACILITY:

TYSON6 OC…OF THIS DECISION. :27

TYSON STILL OPERATES A BEEF PROCESSING PLANT IN DAKOTA CITY, NEBRASKA, ANOTHER TRI-STATE BORDER COMMUNITY TO SIOUX CITY.

HE’S HOPEFUL TYSON WILL KEEP SOME OF THE DUNES WORKERS HERE BECAUSE OF THE 21 YEAR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE CITY, THAT INCLUDES THEIR SPONSORSHIP OF SIOUX CITY’S TYSON EVENTS CENTER ARENA:

TYSON7 OC……….STRONG PARTNER. :14

IN THE MEANTIME, THE CHAMBER IS COMMUNICATING WITH OTHER COMPANIES IN THE TRI-STATE AREA WHO MAY HAVE NEED OF EMPLOYEES WITH THE SKILL SET FROM THE TYSON CORPORATE FACILITY POSITIONS:

TYSON8 OC……….A REALITY. :28
