Caterpillar Plans a New Round of Layoffs to Cut Costs

Caterpillar announced that it plans a new round of layoffs to cut costs as declining revenues from global mining and construction activities erodes its bottom line. The company notified workers it will reduce staff in its customer services support division by cutting 475 jobs. The move comes after the company previously announced about 270 layoffs for Illinois employees. In July, the company reported a drop in quarterly profit due to an expected decline in construction revenue.

Caterpillar Drops the Temporary Agency Staff from its Plant in Desford

Caterpillar has dropped the temporary agency staff from its plant in Desford following a drop in sales. The Peckleton Lane plant assembles diggers - called backhoe loaders and compact wheel loaders - typically used in the building and construction trade, as well as earth-moving, aggregates, mining, forestry and waste. Caterpillar's building construction products division has released about 200 temporary workers, employed by Randstad, who previously performed roles throughout its factory at Desford. This is a result of lower production volumes. The facility has a permanent workforce of about 1,500 employees and about 50 temporary workers will remain on-site. The jobs went on July 24, 2015.
