Va. call center to lay off 115 workers

Posted: Updated:

ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - Wells Fargo Bank is letting go 115 workers at its Roanoke County call center.

The company informed the workers Thursday they will be terminated later this year. They represent 6.4 percent of the center's work force.

According to The Roanoke Times (http://bit.ly/1nAqr98), Wells Fargo spokeswoman Kristy Marshall said the cuts resulted from a reduction in foreclosures and delinquency. She said demand for mortgage financing and refinancing also is down.

The cuts are scheduled to take effect in mid-December.

The center employs 1,800.
