Twenty three local employees, working for the company that bought out PAETEC, will be losing their jobs.

Windstream announced Friday it will cut about 400 positions across the country over the next two weeks. News10NBC has learned 23 of those jobs are here in Rochester. Those are jobs based at the former Midtown site in downtown Rochester, along with the company's office in Fairport. 

Company officials say about 175 of the job cuts will come as part of a voluntary separation initiative the company offered. Impacted employees will receive severance payments and outplacement counseling.
