Qwest Communications plans to close its call center in Pueblo in March.
Qwest spokeswoman Monica Martinez said Thursday that the call center has about 75 jobs. She says there are limited opportunities for affected workers to transfer to Iowa or Utah.
Workers losing their jobs will receive support packages.
Denver-based Qwest is the primary local phone service provider in 14 states. Another call center will be closed in Duluth, Minnesota. The reason for the closures--fewer people are calling directory assistance, depending on the internet or using mobile directory assistance.
