Battelle To Cut 260 Local Jobs

Columbus-based Battelle say it will lay off 260 central Ohio employees and another 90 around the country as part of a cost-cutting effort. 

Battelle officials say they have trouble winning public and private sector contracts because their bids are not competitive. The layoffs of management and administrative workers take effect this week. The organization employs more than 19 hundred central Ohioans.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
