Bank of America lays off 30 in Belfast

Bank of America has laid off about 30 people at its Belfast call center.

"We have made the decision to consolidate some of the work performed in Belfast to other sites," Jumana Bauwens, a bank spokesperson, told the Bangor Daily News.

She said the bank will provide career counseling to those unable to find new work at the bank. Affected employees are eligible for severance. Bank of America is one of the three largest private employers in Waldo County.

Bank of America moved into Belfast when it purchased MBNA, which had a call center there, in 2005.
