WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Production at the North Carolina plant that Dell Inc. is closing in Winston-Salem will be moved to Mexico and other countries, according to a federal document.

The High Point Enterprise reported Friday that Dell indicated in a Trade Adjustment Assistance Act petition that the work that has been done in Winston-Salem will be given to third-party providers in Mexico and other countries.

Dell said last week it will close the plant, cutting almost one thousand jobs in North Carolina. The petition allows workers at the Winston-Salem plant to collect additional unemployment benefits.
