Main Street Hub filed a Workers Adjustment and Retraining Notification with the New York State Department of Labor on September 29. The notice indicates that the Austin, Texas-based company will lay off 108 workers at its New York facility.
Main Street Hub, a full-service marketing platform for local businesses, announced on September 29 that it would move its headquarters and 1,000 employees to a new 114,000-square-foot building on East 6th Street, beginning in 2019.
Main Street Hub will close its office at 1407 Broadway on December 29. “Consolidation of sales offices to Austin, TX” is cited as the reason for the dislocation.
The employees impacted by the layoff are not represented by a union. The layoff date is expected to take place on December 29.
Caroline Baker with Main Street Hub said in an email, “We are relocating our New York-based teams to Austin, in other words, we are providing resources for our sales team members in New York to stay on as part of our sales organization by relocating to Austin.
It is unclear how many employees will be willing to relocate to Austin from New York.
