Eastman Kodak is kicking off a new round of layoffs: 91 jobs will soon be cut.
But a much bigger dip in Kodak's local job numbers is coming as the result of a new accounting practice.
This time last year, Kodak reported a Rochester-area workforce of 7,100 people. Turns out that number should've been 5,900.
That 1,200 person drop is the result of a new classification system that excludes non-local employees who report to Rochester-based supervisors.
So, here is the current local workforce number for the Eastman Kodak Company: 5,129 workers, that's down almost 800 from a year ago.
According to the Rochester Business Journal, that means Kodak is no longer one of the region's top 5 private sector employers.
