The DISH Network announced it's about to lay off about 90 of its employees in El Paso.

The manufacturing facility in El Paso that receives DISH equipment from customer refurbishes is consolidating its manufacturing operations into the first and second shifts – eliminating the third shift operations, reported DISH spokesman John Hall.

Hall says the demand for equipment-refurbishing services is decreasing.

Employees affected were given two months to prepare for the layoff.

“We will also be inviting other local companies to conduct job fairs at our site,” said Hall.
