UPDATE: Delta unit at MSP cut 400 jobs, but workers were reassigned


About 400 employees of a unit of Delta Airlines at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport have been reassigned – but they will not lose jobs.

That's contrary to a Business Journal report earlier Tuesday that said the workers for DAL Global Services, a unit of Delta, would be laid off.

The Business Journal now clarifies that about 100 employees took jobs elsewhere in the company, and that the remaining employees will join Atlanta-based Air Serv Corp. this month.

Delta spokesman Morgan Durrant told KARE 11 that the initial Business Journal report was incorrect, citing a letter from Air Serv Senior Vice President W. Don Stephens. In the letter, Stephens tells Metropolitan Airports Commission Chair Dan Boivin that all Delta employees were told they would be offered jobs with Air Serv, most at the same salary or some at a higher wage.
