First Niagara Financial eliminating 170 jobs

BUFFALO — First Niagara Financial Group is closing 10 branches and eliminating 170 jobs.

The Buffalo-based bank said Wednesday the positions are being cut throughout its four-state territory.

The job reductions come as the bank moves administrative duties out of its branches.

Bank officials say laid-off employees have been invited to apply for other jobs within the company. First Niagara says it is actively recruiting to fill more than 250 positions.
