Friday was the last day for several Eagle Iron Works employees in Des Moines.

After a serious threat the supervisors decided to let the workers go home early before completing a full day of work. 

The plant is facing closure as negotiations with a potential out of state buyer continue. Owners confirmed to Channel 13 that Friday was the last day for more than 70 hourly employees.

Gary Krantz says there has been some tension between employees and after a few threats the supervisors decided to let the workers leave Friday morning.

Krantz says they will still be paid for a full day of work.
