FairPoint to cut 90 jobs in region

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. -

FairPoint Communications will be eliminating 90 jobs in the coming months-- part of a plan to trim operating costs.

The company says the jobs will be cut across Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine, though at this point, they don't know how many in each state.

The layoffs for union workers come following the elimination of 30 management positions last month. FairPoint says it's focusing on simplifying its operations to remain competitive. The cuts are expected to save about $11 million.
