NEW DETAILS: DP&L job cuts to fall on two local sites


The layoffs Dayton Power & Light announced last week are going to happen in two locations in the immediate Dayton area in April, its Woodman Drive headquarters and its Dryden Road offices.

DP&L has alerted state government that it will lay off about 60 Montgomery County workers.

In a notice dated Feb. 7 to Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley and the state’s Department of Job and Family Services, the Dayton-area electric utility says DP&L with its Virginia-based corporate parent AES Corp., is undergoing a “corporate-wide restructuring.”

“This action will result in the permanent layoff of approximately 60 employees at its Dayton Sites located at 1065 Woodman Drive, Dayton … (and) 1900 Dryden Road” in Moraine.

The layoffs will happen over 14 days beginning April 8, DP&L said.

As the Dayton Daily News reported last week, AES said it will cut 60 Ohio jobs and 100 Indiana jobs in a corporate restructuring of both DP&L and Indianapolis Power & Light Co., another AES subsidiary.

AES said then that “organizational and structural changes … will position both companies to operate more efficiently and continue to provide safe, reliable and affordable energy solutions for their customers.”

RELATEDDP&L has given hints of financial stress

The AES announcement last week did not say where the job cuts will fall. But they appear to be all planned in Montgomery County. (A spokeswoman for AES did acknowledge that “some” of the expected cuts would affect DP&L’s Dayton headquarters.)

As part of the new structure, Craig Jackson will assume the role of president and chief executive for both IPL and DP&L on March 31, AES said. An AES spokeswoman said Jackson will split his time between Dayton and Indianapolis, something she said he already does as chief financial officer for both subsidiaries.
