Alstom Signaling to cut 86 jobs in Henrietta

Alstom Signaling, which makes communications equipment for the transportation sector, will be cutting 86 jobs at its facility on John Street in Henrietta.

That’s according to a required notice filed with the New York State Labor Department. The notice says the reason for the layoffs is that some manufacturing activities are being moved to Missouri.

The 86 people are part of a 450-member workforce at that Henrietta operation.

Most of the layoffs will happen next March.

Alstom also has operations in Hornell.
