Comcast closing local dispatch operations, costing 103 jobs

June 30, 2011

More than 100 local employees of cable television giant Comcast Corp. will lose their jobs in September when the Philadelphia-based company closes its area dispatch operations.

Comcast notified the Indiana Department of Workforce Development by letter Wednesday that the layoffs will occur at the company’s facility at 5330 E. 65th St. in Indianapolis.

The jobs will be eliminated between Aug. 29 and Sept. 11, and will affect 103 employees, the company said.

A Comcast spokeswoman said the operations were being consolidated into the company's Plymouth, Mich., offices.

Employees who do not transfer to other jobs within Comcast may be entitled to severance benefits.

Comcast provides cable, Internet and phone service to about 47 million customers in 39 states and the District of Columbia.

Locally, it serves several areas and suburbs surrounding Indianapolis.
