A representative from Delek US Holdings, Inc., confirmed this morning that eight workers were laid off in the company’s effort to reduce “operational redundancies,” according to a release from Spokesperson Noel Ryan.
“A small reduction in employee headcount (sic) occurred yesterday at our El Dorado refinery that led to the elimination of eight positions,” he wrote. “These reductions reflect efforts to eliminate operational redundancies at El Dorado, following our recent acquisition of Lion Oil.”
There are also rumors of a number of demotions, but nothing Delek would comment on per a policy prohibiting discussion of personnel issues.
