Workers whose jobs are among 460 to be eliminated at a Bethlehem Wells Fargocall center are alleging in federal documents that the company is shipping their work overseas.
Three call center employees, Lou Falcone, Morgan Weinhold and Karrissa Arevalo, this week filed a petition for Trade Adjustment Assistance with the U.S. Labor Department, seeking additional job training and re-employment assistance through the federal program that is designed to help workers who lose their jobs due to the impact of foreign trade.
The workers’ petition is listed online as under investigation until the Labor Department makes a determination to certify or deny the request.
In the filing, the workers base their request on “CEO affirmation on various media outlets” of jobs being shipped overseas, as well as foreign job postings in their call center. The workers do not have listed telephone numbers and could not be reached for comment.
