Aramark warned state regulators that it will lay off about 200 dining-service workers in Baltimore as a result of a lost contract, the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation said Tuesday.

The 202-job cut will come when Aramark's educational services arm shuts down its location at the Johns Hopkins University on June 30, the company said in its warning notice.

Aramark, based in Philadelphia, could not immediately be reached for comment.

When dining-service contracts change from one company to another, the new contractor often hires many of the workers who had been employed by the previous provider.
