Intel plant near Rio Rancho continues to shed workers

The number of full-time workers directly employed by Intel Corp. near Rio Rancho fell by 37 percent in 2016 — from 1,900 salaried workers in 2015 to 1,200 as of December — according to the company’s latest annual report to the Sandoval County Commission, released Monday.

“Our head count is down from what we reported last spring in our 2015 report,” Intel spokeswoman Liz Shipley told the Journal in an email.

In fact, the reduction constitutes the sharpest annual decrease to date in direct, full-time employment at the plant since the company began laying off workers and reducing its head count through attrition in 2013. That year, the Sandoval County plant employed 3,300 people, meaning its salaried workforce has fallen by nearly two-thirds over the last four years.

The company still employs about 1,000 contract workers, about half of whom are generally on site daily to work on specific projects, Shipley said. But it’s not clear how many of those are full- or part-time workers.
