One thing for certain is Southern is still in Chapter 11 and though I have no first hand knowledge, must be fighting for its survival. They cannot stay in Chapter 11 forever and their operation must be able to generate cash plus will require exit financing to get out. Part of a restructuring unfortunately is laying-off some employees and have reduced some cost by replacing the 742Fs with 744Fs. I am intrigued by the article stating they have a plan to relocate certain operations. Does anyone know if they plan to leave Norwalk?
Looks like I just answered my own question. I looked at their website and appears they are moving to Cincinnati as all their open jobs are for there.
