Chevron to cut Houston workforce this fall

Chevron Corp. (NYSE: CVX) plans to eliminate approximately 950 jobs in Houston, beginning in October, according to the Houston Business Journal, citing a letter that Chevron submitted to the Texas Workforce Commission.

The newly announced cuts represent 12% of the company’s 8,000 Houston-area workforce. The layoffs will include positions at Chevron’s four corporate centers in downtown Houston.

The Houston job cuts are in addition to a workforce reduction announced in July, which includes eliminating 500 jobs at Chevron’s San Ramon headquarters, along with 50 international positions, and 600 contractor jobs.

The job cuts are expected to be completed by November.
