Luzerne County is laying off eight prison correctional officers, effective Nov. 1, said county Manager Robert Lawton.
Another 10 budgeted vacant correctional officers will be eliminated, he said.
The union was notified, and impacted employees will be notified today, Lawton said.
The action will reduce the number of prison correctional officers from 189 to 171 while maintaining minimum staffing levels required by the collective bargaining agreement, he said.
"All existing posts at the prison will be fully staffed on all three shifts, seven days a week, just as before," Lawton told county council in an email.
