15 local jobs cut in Charter restructuring

A corporate restructuring of Charter Communications has resulted in 15 local jobs being eliminated, a company spokesman said Wednesday.

In a move to streamline operations, Charter eliminated its three-division structure (east, west and central) in favor of two operating groups (east and west), Charter spokesman John Miller said in an e-mail to The Capital Times.

The Central Division was based in Madison and the change resulted in the elimination of 15 jobs at Charter's west-side office.

The Central Division provided oversight for company operations in Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Illinois and Missouri.

Some Central Division staff members will remain based in Madison, where Charter also has its local customer operations based at east-side offices, Miller said.

No changes were made to the operations team in Madison, or throughout Wisconsin, he said.

Charter is the dominant subscription TV provider in the Madison area.

The St. Louis Business Journal reported Tuesday that Charter was cutting 75 jobs nationally in the restructuring.

The job cuts include fewer than 10 positions in St. Louis and 34 positions in Long Beach, Calif., the publication said

The jobs being cut serve duplicate functions, including marketing, human resources and finance, Charter spokeswoman Anita Lamont told the publication.
