AT&T says it is “consolidating” its Springfield call center with another Illinois facility… affecting nearly 200 local employees.
A company spokesman says the workers will be given the chance to relocate to a call center in Rantoul… and will get a relocation allowance.
Workers who opt not to do that would have a chance to apply for other AT&T jobs if they desire. Workers who leave AT&T as a result of the move would get a severance package. The company says the moves will not result in a reduction in its overall Illinois headcount.
