Looks like Walgreens operations in the Sunshine State are taking a big hit. Here is the South Florida Business Journal with the details:
The Walgreen Co. warns it may lay off 123 workers in Miami Lakes, according to a state notice.Yet another blow for workers in the health care industry.
The Deerfield, Ill.-based company filed a Workers Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) notice with the state of Florida on March 1, warning of mass layoffs from the closing of the central pharmacy operation portion of its Miami Lakes facility at 14901 N.W. 79th Court.
The layoffs are expected to take place around May 1 and the company expects the closure to be permanent, according to a letter to the state from Cassie Jesse, human resources manager. The letter did not address the reason for the pharmacy operation closure.
Positions being eliminated include group manager, central utility specialist, resolution center specialist and patient prescriber review operator.
