Job Cuts Coming To Oglesby Warehouse

Posted by wlpo on March 18, 2013

A major employer in the Illinois Valley is bracing for job cuts.

Mike Siemienas with Supervalu says Advantage Logistics in Oglesby will be “readjusting its staff” to match a reduced workload.  He won’t say how many jobs are being lost.  Workers were told earlier this month.

The job cuts are happening because Supervalu is selling over 800 of its stores.  The sale is expected to be finalized this week and includes pharmacies.  Siemienas says Advantage Logistics will lose a significant amount of pharmacy business.

Company officials are expected to make job cuts based on seniority.  Siemienas says severance packages will be available for eligible employees.
