Conduent released a WARN notice today ahead of the layoffs announced for its Webster plant this fall.
According to the notice, 129 people will be let go from the Webster plant on Phillips Road on or around September 28, 2017. The company lists that it's closing the branch for economic reasons.
Last week, Conduent announced both Rochester and Webster locations are closing and that 187 people will be impacted.
“As part of our previously announced strategic transformation initiative, we have made the decision to exit our Webster and Rochester locations. This decision will enable greater operational efficiencies and support our long-term growth and profitability plan. Conduent will continue to invest in Monroe County and have employees in the greater Rochester area," says a statement from the company.
Plans to move its call center operations from Webster to leased space in the former Macy's building at the Medley Centre are still in place.
