Baking resumes this week at the Livonia bakery after Michigan businessmen Jim McColgan and Ron Beebe bought the assets of Awrey Bakeries in the nick of time.
Awrey Bakeries, a Livonia staple for four decades, won’t go out of business after all.
A union official says Livonia-based Awrey Bakeries is planning to issue a 60-day federally required layoff notice to its 150 employees after filing with the state.
Union workers at Awrey Bakeries have agreed to a wage cut to help save the 102-year-old company from closing its doors.
About 150 union workers at Awrey Bakeries rejected a take-it-or-leave-it contract on Wednesday, leaving the Livonia company’s future in doubt.
