CLEVELAND — Steel manufacturer ArcelorMittal Cleveland filed a notice with the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services that it’s placing employees at the Cleveland Plant, 3060 Eggers Avenue, on temporary, unpaid furloughs—making it the second furlough at this site, according to the notice.

This furlough will impact 247 employees who are employed at the Cleveland Plant site, which covers more than 870 acres and employs 1,887 people.

ArcelorMittal said many of its customers have unexpectedly and temporarily closed their plants due to the coronavirus pandemic.

ArcelorMittal Cleveland is one of many companies around the state who filed the notice under the Worker Adjustment And Retraining Notification Act (WARN).

Other companies who filed public layoff notices this week, included Maines Paper & Food Service, Oakwood Village, impacting 63 employees and Avis Budget Car Rental, Cleveland, impacting 44 employees.
