Daimler Trucks North America to Cut Almost 1,000 Jobs at Rowan County Truck Plant
Jan 4 16
Daimler Trucks North America announced that the layoffs will cut the 3,100-member work force at the Cleveland plant by 936. It will also reduce the plant's output of heavy-duty Freightliner and Western Star trucks by one-third. The layoffs are due to a sustained reduction in orders and diminished build rate, DTNA wrote in a letter delivered to the N.C. Department of Commerce. The N.C. Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act notice was dated Dec. 31, 2015. The layoffs are effective on January 8, 2016, but employees will be paid for the work missed from January 8 2016 until the 60-day WARN notice deadline, which is early March 2016. Assemblers will be the biggest hit among the job classifications at the DTNA plant in the Rowan County town of Cleveland. The list says 666 assembler jobs will be cut. Next up for job cuts is a classification called utility team member, which will see 107 jobs eliminated.
