TIOGA, La. (AP) - The General Electric Oil & Gas facility in the Tioga area will lay off more than 90 percent of its workforce this fall.

The Louisiana Workforce Commission said in a news release the company issued a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification about the planned layoffs.

The company says about 269 of the approximately 289 manufacturing, sales/services and engineering employees will be laid off.

The workforce reduction will begin Sept. 2 and be complete by Dec. 31.

The facility is commonly known as GE-Dresser. The plant was formerly operated by Dresser Inc. until GE bought that company in 2010.
