MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — An informational meeting for former employees of Mylan Pharmaceuticals is scheduled for Thursday at Lakeview Golf & Resort Spa.
“We are marshaling all of the state’s resources into the Morgantown area to provide assistance for these employees and we will continue our efforts to make sure they have every chance to find opportunities so they can stay, live, work and grow their families in West Virginia,” Gov. Jim Justice was quoted in a press release.
Mylan laid off approximately 400 union employees last week. Another 100 or so non-union management positions are also expected to be eliminated as part of what the company is calling a “right sizing” of their Morgantown operation.
The meeting will provide information about state and federal resources available to assist those employees including:
- Education and Training Opportunities
- Unemployment Filing
- Job Search Assistance
- Healthcare Coverage Options
Alphabetical divisions, by last name, and times to attend have been established for these affected employees and are as follows:
