Sen. Mikulski Meets With Labinal Officials About Salisbury Jobs

Posted:
WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Barbara A. Mikulski (D-Md.) today continued her fight to protect Eastern Shore jobs by convening a meeting with Lieutenant Governor Boyd K. Rutherford, Safran North America President and CEO Peter Lengyel, CEO of Labinal Global Alain Saurent, President of Labinal North America Jorge Ortega and General Manager of Labinal Salisbury Tony Rodriguez to strategize on how to save jobs and protect Maryland workers in the wake of Labinal's surprise announcement that they are moving operations to Denton, Texas.

“Today I convened a meeting with Labinal's executive team to get to the bottom of what can be done to protect Salisbury workers and families that will be impacted by Labinal's decision to move,” Senator Mikulski said. “The dedicated men and women who work day-in and day-out on the factory floor in Salisbury need answers about how their lives will be affected by Labinal's decision. I will continue to work Labinal leaders as they implement their plan. I want the workers in Salisbury and their families to know I'm on their side. I'll never stop fighting for them and their economic security.”  

At today's meeting convened by Senator Mikulski, leaders of Labinal's parent company Safran North America promised to take the following steps to assist their workers in Salisbury:

To work with local government and business and development leaders to help identify a possible new employer for the Salisbury facility

Assign a dedicated Labinal employee at the Salisbury facility to explore potential employment opportunities at other regional employers like Wallops Island Flight Facility and Dover Air Force Base for workers facing job loss

Develop an inventory of the skills of current Labinal Salisbury employees to determine how they could be matched with other employers in the area  

Collaborate with local workforce partners to develop and offer retraining for affected workers

“I appreciate the participation of Lieutenant Governor Rutherford and the Hogan Administration and their willingness to use the resources of the State of Maryland to achieve these goals,” Senator Mikulski said. “I look forward to working with them to save and protect jobs on the Eastern Shore.”
