Layoffs will impact come 151 NTT workers in North Carolina just days before Christmas as part of the company’s global transformation.

That’s according to a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) with the North Carolina Department of Commerce’s Division of Workforce Solutions. NTT expects the layoffs to be permanent.

The layoffs are taking place at NTT America’s facility in Charlotte, North Carolina. Expect them to start on Dec. 6.

There are no bumping rights – an ability to replace a more junior worker – for any of the affected employees. Furthermore, they don’t have union representation.

Among the eliminated NTT positions will be purchasing agents, inside client specialists, inside client managers, and credit and collections coordinators.

We reached out to NTT. The company sent us the following statement:

“NTT is undergoing the next phase of our global transformation that will improve client centricity, employee experience and operational efficiency. Additionally, this will allow NTT to continue to invest in new innovations across our IT services and infrastructure, networks, cloud and edge, all growth opportunities for the company, such as our recently rolled out private 5G network-as-a-service capability and data center builds throughout the world.”

NTT’s private 5G solution connects companies’ onsite and distributed devices and users to the cloud. In addition, the P5G platform runs on cloud-native architecture with cloud-based, edge-based or premises-based delivery models.

NTT recently announced it will allow its 320,000 staff to work remotely.
