WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Tyco Electronics announced Wednesday that it will lay off 20,000 employees worldwide by September, effectively cutting its work force by more than 20 percent in a single fiscal year. A company spokesman declined to reveal how the Waynesboro plant will be affected, nor share the number of affected employees statewide. The electronic components manufacturer closed its Carlisle, Pa., and Emigsville, Pa., plants during layoffs two months ago. "There's certainly no specific plan for more layoffs at this point.

WAYNESBORO, PA. -- Although Tyco Electronics announced this week that it will lay off 2,500 employees worldwide, corporate officials would not discuss what - if any - impact will be felt at the Waynesboro plant. The local plant, which employs 230 people, differs from others operated by Tyco Electronics in that it makes the tools later used elsewhere to wire components of computers, appliances, handheld devices and flat-screen televisions. "This has been a productive facility for them," said L. Michael Ross, president of the Franklin County (Pa.)

TE Connectivity, formerly Tyco Electronics, has laid off 30 people at its North Grant Street plant. “The plant had about 300 employees prior to the reduction,” company spokesman Mike Ratcliff said. The affected plant does application tooling for other TE Connectivity facilities and products. Ratcliff said the work-force reduction was made because of diminished demand. TE Connectivity enlarged Waynesboro's plant a few years ago when it closed one in Virginia and transferred the work there.

WAYNESBORO, PA. -- The Waynesboro Borough Council wants to improve pedestrian safety at the intersection of East Main Street, Mickley Avenue and East Second Street, although the project continues to get costlier. Council members agreed Wednesday they want to create a four-way stop for traffic if pedestrians press a crossing button. Councilman Ronnie Martin, street committee chairman, said an estimated $1,300 will be needed to change the traffic signal's controller. On top of that, Martin said he's been told the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation wants to require a traffic study that would cost about $2,000.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Washington Township Planning and Zoning Commission wants to literally put its feet on the ground before giving a thumbs up or thumbs down to a 233-unit, mixed-use planned residential development along Pa. 316 north of Waynesboro. The planners tabled the proposed plan so they could walk the property near Tyco Electronics on Nov. 2 with representatives of Chambersburg, Pa.-based engineering firm All Land Services Inc. to get the lay of the land, especially the piece owner Dan Long has considered dedicating to the township.

Log cabin is auction's top prize By RICHARD F. BELISLE / Staff Writer, Waynesboro Photo: KEVIN G. GILBERT / staff photographer The big seller at Saturday's American Cancer Society auction will be a log cabin that was built by employees of a local electronics firm. "We hope it brings about $4,000," said Donald Sheffler, one of more than a dozen workers at TYCO Electronics at 627 N. Grant St., who built the 8-foot-by-12-foot log cabin. The cabin comes complete with insulation, windows, carpeting and a porch roof that flips back over the main roof so the structure can easily be moved.
