Perdue to outsource 100 processing plant jobs

Chicken catchers to come from subcontractor Unicon

Perdue Farms Inc. has said it plans to outsource roughly 100 processing plant jobs at the end of March, according to reports.

Perdue has hired subcontractor Unicon to employ chicken catchers at Perdue processing plants in Georgetown, Del., and Accomack County, Va. According to Perdue Vice president of Corporate Communications Luis Luna, the decision was made to cut costs.

Chicken catcher positions at Perdue's plant in Milford, Del., have already been subcontracted; according to Luna the same change is being assessed at the company's site in Salisbury.
