PLAINSBORO, N.J. (AP) - Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. says it plans to eliminate the jobs of about 200 support service workers at its Plainsboro and other central New Jersey offices.

The pharmaceutical company says the cuts will take place over the next year as its marketing, information technology and finance operations are consolidated at a new facility in Tampa, Fla., where costs are lower.

The company says the 200 workers losing their jobs include 100 contractors.

The cuts represent only a small percentage of the company's workforce in New Jersey, where it employs more than 6,000 at its global research, commercial and manufacturing headquarters.

    Ghosts of Sandy still visible in Ortley Beach

    It's nearly two years since Superstorm Sandy blasted into Ortley Beach and decimated this small section of Toms River. And the storm-slammed empty houses on some streets and trailers on lots are painful reminders that Ortley Beach was dubbed “ground zero” by some after the Oct. 29, 2012 storm devastated the Jersey coast. A number of Ortley Beach residents attended the Aug. 26 Township Council meeting to ask what, if anything, can be done to speed things up.
