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.
