AT&T Springfield center closing, ending 188 jobs

SPRINGFIELD — AT&T Inc. plans to close a call center in Springfield and cut 188 jobs starting next month.

According to The State Journal-Register, the job cuts will begin Aug. 3.

Details about the layoffs come from a notice the company filed with the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity. Illinois law requires that a company laying off 50 or more people notify the state.

Dallas, Texas-based AT&T had already said earlier this summer that the call center's work would be consolidated at other locations in Illinois.

The call center opened in 2001.
