The oil bust continues to hit workers in the Eagle Ford Shale.
Three oil and gas service companies recently told the Texas Workforce Commission about mass layoffs in San Antonio and Robstown — both cities outside of the South Texas shale field that have served as a base for oil field staging and services.
CalFrac Well Services in San Antonio will lay off 87 workers by May 1. Cudd Energy Services already laid off 60 workers at its Tacco Drive facility in San Antonio on March 11, although those workers will be paid and receive health insurance through May 10. And C&J Energy Services will lay off 87 employees at its facility in Robstown, according to letters filed with the Texas Workforce Commission.
The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act requires companies in many instances to provide notice 60 days in advance of plant closures or mass layoffs.
