Several workers at General Electric’s power systems plant in Schenectady and research lab in Niskayuna will be laid off.

The Times Union reports that employees were notified of the layoffs during an “all-hands” meeting early Friday. 130 hourly union workers will be affected.

The round of layoffs comes a month after GE Power said it would cut roughly 12,000 global jobs.
