Employees to Lose Jobs Due to Merger

One hundred seventeen people may soon be out of their jobs due to Savannah Electric's merger with Georgia Power. A spokesperson for Savannah Electric says the company is working with those employees to find new jobs with Georgia Power, but many of those positions are in another part of the state.

Any workers who can't find new positions will receive a severance check after the companies combine. That's expected to take place July 1.
