Roadway to lay off 160 at Hagman Rd. location

Roadway Express, which operates two truck terminals in Toledo, filed notice that it intends to lay off 160 employees at its facility at 6180 Hagman Rd.

The company, in a required filing under the Ohio Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, said the layoffs will start on March 1 and that some of the affected employees are represented by Teamsters Local 20. Others are nonunion clerical staff and management.

The layoffs are because of a merger, announced in September, between Roadway and its sister company, Yellow Transportation, which are both owned by YRC Worldwide. A company official said the local terminal will become a regional operation under the new division, which will be called Yellow Roadway.

YRC has indicated it might close 200 overlapping terminals as it combines Yellow and Roadway.
