Sherwin-Williams to layoff 24 workers in Andover


ANDOVER, Kan. (KSNW) – The Machinists Union tells KSN News that 24 people will be without a job at the Sherwin Williams Manufacturing Facility in Andover.

The employees were given a two-week notice.

“The news came unexpected,” said Tyson Kelly, district 70 business representative. “It is a substantial layoff for the size of facility that Sherwin-Williams operates in Andover. It’s a big disappointment.”

Friday, Jan. 31, will be the last day for those who are affected by the layoff.
