MONROE, La. (AP) - More Wingspan employees in Monroe were issued layoff notices from the company this week. But the city’s economic development officer said another unidentified call center company has made inquiries about locating an operation in Monroe.

Wingspan issued layoff notices to more than 100 employees Tuesday. That followed a layoff at the Monroe center last fall.

The News-Star reports (https://tnsne.ws/1G25vBh) it was unclear how many, if any, Wingspan employees will remain in Monroe.

Wingspan’s Guy Davis, a senior vice president, said in a statement the company did not have additional projects for local employees to move to and would be reducing staff in Monroe, effective April 30.

Dwight Vines, Monroe’s economic development officer, says another call center company is considering Monroe, although no deal has been struck.
