The company that operates Yellow Pages, YP Holdings, plans to cut 120 jobs in St. Louis this year.

YP Holdings, based in Tucker, Ga., on Tuesday notified the state of Missouri in a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification notice that the St. Louis layoffs will occur between April and July.

The company didn’t elaborate but the Communications Workers of America Local 6300 says 92 of the employees are members of the CWA. The union says their jobs include customer service representatives and graphic arts employees.

The remaining 28 layoffs will be management positions.

Officials said many of the employees were made aware of the cuts back in November.

“Obviously, we are never happy when members are losing their jobs,” Mark Franken, area director of the Communications Workers of America District 6, said, adding that it appears no other cuts are planned. “As far as we know, this is it for awhile, but we have no certainty of that.”

The CWA says the positions are being outsourced overseas.
