Governor asks Sunoco to reverse Phila. job cuts, Sunoco says no

Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell on Thursday asked Sunoco Inc. to rescind its decision to permanently lay off 20 percent of its salaried work force.

A spokesman for Sunoco (NYSE: SUN) said the layoffs, which will eliminate 750 white-collar positions, are necessary because of the economy.

“This is a strategic decision to keep the company strong so we can continue to provide good jobs and continue to attract investments that allow us to grow. So we will not be reversing our decision,” Thomas Golembeski said.
