A Wisconsin-based trucking company plans to lay off 119 employees in Aurora after losing a contract.

Schneider National Carriers Inc. said in a letter to the state last week that the affected employees at the company’s facility at 3150 Pagosa St. will lose their jobs by April 28.

The company said it is cutting jobs because it is no longer providing certain services to auto giants General Motors and Ford.

“It is our understanding that General Motors and Ford have contracted with a different carrier and that replacement company may offer some or all of the impacted workers employment,” the company wrote in the letter.

The majority of affected employees are described as drivers or warehouse associates.

Schneider sent the letter to the state in compliance with the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, which requires large employers to provide advance notice of plant closings and significant layoffs.

Green Bay-based Schneider says on its website that it has more than 200 facilities worldwide.

Sad for these individuals in the short term.
But, all the competent workers should have new jobs within the next 2 months.
Actual layoffs should be about two.

There is a massive shortage of drivers in the trucking industry right now. Something like 11 to 1 for load to driver ratio. (i.e 11x more demand than supply)
