Parent company of Luminant, TXU Energy expanding layoffs
(KLTV) - The new parent company of Luminant and TXU Energy is expanding on layoffs that were announced for East Texas this month.
TCEH confirmed today that about 500 positions with TXU Energy and Luminant will also affected by layoffs, in addition to an announcement earlier this month that 158 positions at Luminant mines in Rusk and Panola counties were being eliminated.
No details are available yet on the specific locations affected by the latest round of layoffs, but a company spokesman says the layoffs will be company-wide.
The spokesman says most of the new layoffs will be on the support side and should not impact power plant operations or customer service.
The last day at work for 130 Luminant employees will be December 16.
