President of the Local Steelworkers Union, Jeff Hill, says Solvay Advanced Polymers is planning a permanent reduction in it's force.

Marietta Plant Manager Wally Kandel says 23 employeed, 13 hourly and 10 salaried employees by next Tuesday, November 17.

In addition, it offered voluntary options to employees, which might affect the number of involuntary layoffs, depending on how many take the voluntary option.

The company employs about 250 workers, about half being hourly.
