ALBANY, GA (WALB) - In the next 32 days, the first round of job cuts at Cooper Tire will take effect.

Nearly 500 Cooper Tire employees were notified in January their last day of work will be the last week of March.

Company officials also said on Wednesday that production will eventually be changed from seven days a week to five.

A date for that change has not been determined, and no closure date has been chosen, though Cooper plans to shut down the facility later this year

A transition center has been set up at the plant to assist employees with the closure.
