Chevron plans layoffs in San Joaquin Valley Business Unit
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) —
Chevron is working on plans to reduce its local workforce.
Spokeswoman Carla Musser said they won’t know which employees or how many employees will be affected until next year.
She said Chevron announced its "new organizational model" Wednesday and plans to cut 26 percent of its workforce in the San Joaquin Valley Business Unit. Plans for workforce reduction have been underway since last January in order to "improve margins and reduce operating costs to enable a long term, sustainable business," according to the company statement.
Chevron said the reductions will impact both field and office workers in Kern, Fresno and Monterey counties.
Some employees will be eligible to "pursue positions at other locations within Chevron during 2018," reads the company statement.
