Hostess Brands Inc. has closed a dozen facilities in South Carolina that has cost 106 employees their jobs. The closings occurred on Nov. 21.

Greenville had 10 employees laid off and Spartanburg had 14.

The closings and layoffs were announced in a regulatory WARN (Worker Adjustment and Restraining Notification) Filing published by SC Works.

Hostess announced last month it was closing its facilities when an agreement wasn’t reached between the company and the Bakery, Confectionary, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers Union.

Hostess Brands said it intends to retain approximately 3,200 employees to assist with the initial phase of the wind down. Employee headcount is expected to decrease by 94 percent within the first 16 weeks of the wind down. The entire process is expected to be completed in one year.
