Schering-Plough to Cut Up to 210 Jobs

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A day after announcing another losing quarter, drugmaker Schering-Plough Corp. said Friday it is eliminating up to 210 manufacturing positions at its two plants in Puerto Rico because of slumping product sales.

The maker of hepatitis C drugs and prescription Clarinex and over-the-counter Claritin for seasonal allergies said it is cutting 180 full-time production positions at its manufacturing plant in Manati, Puerto Rico. The company is eliminating up to 30 full-time jobs at a plant in Las Piedras, company spokeswoman Rosemarie Yancosek said.

That would leave 730 workers at Manati and 560 at Las Piedras.

"The reduction in work force is mainly related to decreases in production volume," she said.
