Employees of call centres in Fredericton and Bathurst appear to be out of a job as of Wednesday morning as Connect North America closed its two New Brunswick centres overnight.
Employees arriving for work in both cities this morning found a locked door with a note on it.
The note said the call centre was closed until further notice and employees would be contacted.
Michelle MacFarland, an employee for a year and a half, is one of about 250 people who worked at the centre in Fredericton.
"It's very upsetting actually, you know, it wasn't expected," MacFarland said Wednesday. "I mean there were little warning signs here and there, we figured we had a few months, we figured we'd get a little warning, they would have the courtesy to give us a couple weeks' notice or something. We didn't figure there would be a note on the door."
At this time it's not known how many people have been affected by the closure in Bathurst.
