The news comes on the heels of last month's announcement that 110 unionized workers would lose their jobs in January. 11 managers were turfed at that time, as well. The company is on a global cost-cutting and rationalization binge - which is easy enough to understand from a macroeconomic perspective, but incredibly difficult to swallow if it's your job that's just disappeared, and now you have to go home and explain it to your family.
