Chris Knight at the Adirondack Daily Enterprise is reporting that layoffs are coming for scientists and support staff at Trudeau Institute in Saranac Lake.
Just how many of Trudeau’s roughly 130 employees will be affected remains unclear.
In an interview with the Enterprise this morning, Woodland wouldn’t say how many staff and scientists would lose their jobs, although he said none of Trudeau’s lead research teams will be affected. Woodland said the belt tightening is part of the normal “ebb and flow” in Trudeau’s grant funding cycle.
This announcement follows on the heels of Trudeau’s announcement that it will remain anchored in the Adirondacks. Chris Knight will have a full report on these latest developments tomorrow morning during NCPR’s 8 O’clock Hour.
