SIDNEY –  ACCO’s Sidney plant announced plans yesterday to lay off the majority of their workforce within the coming days, according to reports, as manufacturing is suspended during the COVID-19 outbreak.

“Anything like this is going to have a devastating effect on the community,” said Village of Sidney Mayor Andrew Matviak. “It’s a challenging time for everyone.”
