Charles River Lays Off 115 in Quebec
Wilmington, MA-based Charles River Laboratories (NYSE: CRL) has eliminated 115 positions at subsidiary CTBR Bio-Research in Senneville, Quebec, according to an article yesterday in the Montreal Gazette. A spokesperson quoted in the article attributed the cuts to the postponement of contract clinical research and development projects by the company’s pharmaceutical-industry clients. It’s not Charles River’s first round of layoffs since the recession began—the company cut about 3 percent of its global workforce back in February.
