MASSENA, N.Y. -

No layoffs at Alcoa in Massena.

Alcoa has two plants there.  In January it announced plans to close Massena East and let go 300 workers because the price of aluminum had plunged.  Now a deal to modernize the plant will keep it open and fully staffed.  

The New York Power Authority will maintain Alcoa's hydro-power supply and waive two charges on the company's monthly bills.  In exchange Alcoa will fund a training program for current employees for technical jobs at the plant.  The other plant -- Massena West -- employs 750 people and no changes are planned there.
