FITZGERALD - It's been a year of bad news, good news, and now more bad news for Delphi workers in Fitzgerald. Ninety employees have been laid off indefinitely at the car battery manufacturing plant.

Employees were excited earlier this year, when the plant was taken off a list of closures, and put into a special automotive holdings group. That meant they were supposed to get special support to make them more profitable. But a group of consultants decided the best way to cut costs is get rid of some employees, but they say they could still return. The laid off workers will get 85 percent of their wages until September. That's when their union contract expires.
