ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. -- Verizon Communications has plans to cut several hundred positions at its Orangeburg facility by the end of May 2017, according to lohud.com.

About 250 positions, roughly one-third of the company’s Rockland workforce, will be moved to facilities in other states, according to lohud.com, which reported that those employees affected by the change were notified Wednesday.

Verizon plans to move the positions to sites in Tampa, Florida; Greenville, South Carolina and Irving, Texas, according to lohud.com, which reported that employees have been given the option of transferring to the states.

The job cuts, part of a larger trend at Verizon’s call centers, include the loss of 600 jobs in Rochester by the end of January 2017, according to lohud.com.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo was critical of the communications company’s decision to cut 850 jobs from his state, with one aide calling the move an “egregious example of corporate abuse.”
