GCA Production Services Inc. and its parent company ABM filed a notice with the state that it expects to lay off at least 50 workers providing service to Hertz at Jacksonville International Airport.

However, the company is hoping the employees will be placed in other jobs at ABM or with the new contractor at the airport.

The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification filed July 5 said GCA will cease providing vehicle services for Hertz on Sept. 7 and lay off at least 50 employees and as many as 73.

Jorge Rivera, human resources manager for GCA, said some workers may be offered jobs at Managed Labor Solutions, which will take over the Hertz contract on Sept. 8.

He also said ABM, a facility solutions company, has a contract to provide custodial services to Duval County schools and he expects some of the laid off employees to transfer to that division.

“All of the employees are going to be offered an opportunity for work,” he said.

GCA filed another notice saying 90 employees will be affected by the end of its contract with Hertz at Fort Lauderdale International Airport.
