Festiva Hospitality Group cuts 50 jobs

A tough Christmas for some workers at an Asheville resort and vacation company.

Managers fired more than 50 Festiva Hospitality Group workers lost their jobs when the marketing division was eliminated.

Festiva owns and manages hotels, time-share rentals, and homes in the Eastern States, and Carribean.

Workers say they were given no notice before the meeting Monday.

Managers did offer severance pay to some employees.

Hourly workers told us they would apply for jobs at some call centers in the Asheville area.
