Time Warner Cable cuts jobs in Colorado market

Just in time for its Q4 09 earnings call today, Time Warner Cable announced that it will be shutting down its National Division site in Colorado. The move, which will be carried out later this year, could leave about 350 Colorado-based employees without jobs.

According to a report in the Denver Post, the job cuts which comprise 30 percent of TWC's workforce in Colorado will include around 100 management positions. The cable MSO said the process of shutting down the National Systems site in Denver and a separate call center will start in 90 days "and last for several months."  

Despite this closure, TWC will continue to employ 800 workers in five Colorado-based facilities, including its cable operations in Gunnison and Telluride.

"We are not leaving Colorado," said TWC spokesperson Jim Gordon. "We are clearly invested here."

Closing the National Division is part of the MSO's broader regionalization and standardization process the company says is designed to improve the customer experience. Upon completion, TWC's National Division will be aligned with its East, West and Midwest regions.
