CenturyLink is cutting around 55 jobs from its Louisiana workforce as part of a companywide layoff plan.
Spokesperson Annemarie Sartor did not indicate what positions were part of the reduction. The telecommunications company employs about 2,500 people at its headquarters in Ouachita Parish.
Earlier this month, CenturyLink announced a reduction of 1,000 jobs companywide. They employ approximately 44,000 workers around the world.
The layoffs come following disappointing second quarter earnings that were reported in late July.
