Verizon to Cut 1,700 Technician & Call Center Jobs

Verizon Communications Inc. is looking to cut its workforce by 1,700 people, or almost 1 percent, through a buyout offer for technicians and call-center employees. The elimination of these call center jobs comes on the heels of other recent layoffs at Verizon Wireless as well.

According to news releases, Verizon said that it could resort to involuntary layoffs if too few employees accept the voluntary package.
