SAN JOSE -- Jabil will furlough more than 900 workers at its Silicon Valley plants over the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, the company indicated in a state filing last month.

It will mark the second straight year the EMS company has sidelined its employees in the area.

Affected plants include South San Jose, Fremont and Livermore, with a reported 909 workers scheduled to be left home during the plant shutdowns.

Closures will begin at selected locations the week of and after Thanksgiving. Other shutdowns will take place in late December.

Another area plant, the Silver Creek site, is wrapping up operations and will be shuttered permanently.
