Posted: Updated:
EUFAULA, AL (WTVM) -

Some workers in Eufaula are getting pink slips: Cooper Lighting is letting 300 workers go.

Officials say the move is necessary because of global competition. Most of the jobs are going to Mexico. Cooper Lighting is among the three largest employers in Eufaula.

Mayor Jack Tibbs says he's already contacted state officials to help those who are losing their jobs.
