Going Out of Business Soon! Major Layoffs in Maryland as Massive Company Reduces Staff


A large corporation has reportedly filed with the Maryland Department of Labor to lay off hundreds of employees throughout the state.

There will be 540 layoffs as a result of the August closure of a UPS distribution center in Baltimore County.

UPS notified the Maryland Department of Labor of its intention to terminate operations at its sorting plant close to the junction of Interstates 95 and 695 on August 23, along with preparations for a mass layoff.

This shuttering comes after 118 employees were let go in a March round of layoffs at the same site.

The shutdown will not affect service to the Baltimore area, according to a UPS representative.
