Henrico-based Altria announces job cuts coming

Impact on the company's 3,900 local employees not yet known
UPDATE: JAN. 29, 4:45 P.M. – Perhaps as many as half of the 490 jobs that will be cut by Henrico-based Altria will come from the company's local employee base, the Citizen has learned. The company announced earlier today that it would be cutting the jobs (all of them salaried positions) as part of an initiative designed to save $300 million annually.

Half of the 490 jobs will come from the company's sales force, a source told the Citizen. A number also are likely to come from middle management, as Altria seeks to become a leaner company.

Employees who lose their jobs will receive a minimum of six months of severance, with extra benefits being offered to those who are 50-54 years old and who have at least 5 years of service time with the company.
