Layoff notices went out this week to more than two dozen salaried employees at the AlliedSignal Communications Systems plant in Towson as part of a downsizing effort announced at the end of July.

About the same number of employees took voluntary separation packages in August, for a total layoff of 50 to 55 workers, said company spokeswoman Maria Trintis Stamas.

"It was a tough business decision that we needed to make to help align our business costs with sales revenues," she said.

The Towson plant employs roughly 1,000. The workers who volunteered to lose their jobs got acceptance notices about two weeks ago, Trintis Stamas said.

The remaining cuts occurred Monday. Those workers will be off the job Sept. 20.

All will receive severance pay and benefits based on length of service, Trintis Stamas said, and the company is helping them find other employment.

Another 160 AlliedSignal workers lost their jobs in January.

AlliedSignal also employs about 3,000 at its Technical Services Division in Columbia.
