Delaware North furloughs 1,300 at Lambeau Field, Miller Park
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The catering company for Lambeau Field and Miller Park says it has temporarily laid off about 1,300 employees.
Delaware North notified Wisconsin labor officials to comply with the law because the layoffs could last more than six months due to the coronavirus outbreak.
In a letter to the state, Delaware North executive Eileen Morgan said the pandemic has been longer and more devastating than expected.
“We continue to hope that this action is temporary, but the estimated duration cannot be determined with any certainty at this time,” Morgan said.
WLUK-TV reports the Buffalo, New York-based food service company began placing a number of full-time and part-time employees on temporary layoffs in March.
While the Milwaukee Brewers prepare to begin games later this month, there’s no need for food and beverage service because there won’t be fans in the stands. The NFL’s plans are still up in the air.
