American sandwich and salad chain Subway on Tuesday laid off another 150 employees.

This is Subway’s second major workforce reduction in three months.

“The COVID-19 pandemic forced the company to accelerate a restructuring plan it had already been preparing,” said Alan Marcus, Senior Director of Public relations, Subway in an emailed statement.

Subway in February laid off 300 people, most of them at company headquarters, as part of a reorganization designed at least in part to give employees a sense of urgency about the need to reverse a yearlong sales slide.

“A reduction in workforce is never an easy decision, especially during these unprecedented times. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to accelerate a restructuring plan for which we had been preparing,” Marcus added.

Subway reduced the size of its global workforce by about 150 workers, two-thirds of them in Milford, and reassigned some staff “for better alignment and efficiencies.
