Chiquita Brands filed a notice in Ohio this week, laying out plans to eliminate about 200 employees as the company moves its headquarters to Charlotte this year.
The notice is required when a company plans to do mass job cuts. Chiquita said the cuts are expected to begin on April 6 in Cincinnati.
The cuts are expected to be a combination of jobs being eliminated and employees who decline the company's offer to move to Charlotte. The number could change if more employees decide not to move, Chiquita said.
Chiquita CEO Fernando Aguirre has previously said the company plans to hire about 200 workers in Charlotte. The company is receiving more than $22 million in state and local incentives for moving its headquarters to the NASCAR office building in uptown Charlotte.
