East Bay Chevron call center lays off 76

Nearly 80 people who work in an East Bay call center operated by Chevron will be looking for new jobs as the oil giant gets out of the credit car dbusiness.

Chevron officials say 76 workers at the center in Concord have already been notified they'll be let go in layoffs starting in February.

The notices come after San Ramon-based Chevron announced in August that two of its subsidiaries would sell their Chevron-branded credit card businesses.

One of the buyers is FleetCor, a company that processes fuel card transactions.

A FleetCor official says the company plans on interviewing some of Chevron workers as it prepares to open an operations center in the East Bay.
