Report: Upper Deck Laid Off 33 Workers In January

A high traffic Chinese news & information website posted a list of layoffs by certain California companies. Upper Deck, located in Carlsbad, CA was on the list with a total of 33 pink-slips given out 1/11/2010.

It is unclear at the moment if, one, the report on this website is indeed accurate.  And two, are these the same layoffs that were reported in the entertainment division just a few days ago?

UPDATE: Layoff report is verified. Link to .GOV website.

UPDATE II: Special thanks goes out to Two Packs A Day - which is a great blog by the way - for providing Sports Card Report with a link to all of these unfortunate folks over at Upper Deck who were recently laid off.

The number represents the people laid off with that specific job title.

  1. Finding out from your entry that California lists some layoffs, I dug further on the site and found more detail about the UD layoff in this link:

    Search for "Upper Deck" and you'll find some of the job titles of people being laid off.

  2. go check out the EDD site again! UD is scheduled to have another giant layoff on May 10th of 119 people.

    Notice was given March 18th, so it probably was before UD lost their football license (or UD might have known that was coming and determined what they needed to do and filed the notice with the california EDD).
