Yellow Pages to lay off 200

March 5, 2013 at 12:48 PM

ST. LOUIS, March 5 (UPI) -- A union representative said YP Holdings, publishers of Yellow Pages, is laying off 200 workers this year in Dallas and St. Louis.

"Obviously, we are never happy when members are losing their jobs. As far as we know, this is it for awhile, but we have no certainty of that," said Mark Franken, a regional director of the Communications Workers of America stationed in Austin, Texas.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Tuesday YP Holdings, which is based in Tucker, Ga., had filed a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification notice with Missouri. The company said 120 layoffs in St. Louis were planned.

The newspaper said calls to the company for comment were not returned.
