Village to Move on From Latest Blow
CAO says Perth-Andover searching for call-centre replacement
Perth-Andover's CAO says the village has to move on after finding out its largest private employer won't be re-opening in the community.
Last week it was announced Thing-5, a call centre that was damaged by flooding, would remain closed leaving 65 jobs up in the air.
Village CAO Dan Dionne says the news is just another blow to an already hurting community.
Dionne says the village is no longer in talks with Thing-5 but they are working with the province to replace the employer.
Some of the employees were offered positions at call centres in Plaster Rock and Florenceville-Bristol.
