Westinghouse job cuts expected to hit Cranberry headquarters

Updated:

CRANBERRY, Pa. - Westinghouse leaders announced the elimination of 660 jobs worldwide – and some of those cuts will be at their Cranberry headquarters.

Officials with the electric company said a global slowdown for nuclear power reactors is to blame.

A company spokesperson would not say how many positions could be cut locally. Westinghouse employs 6,000 people with nearly 4,300 of those stationed in Cranberry.
