Owner of Freightliner Announces New Round of Layoffs in U.S and Mexico Plants
Daimler AG, the German multinational automotive corporation with headquarter in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, Germany said it will lay off 1,200 or more workers in three of its U.S plants and one in Mexico.
This is the second round of job cuts in the year and has been mainly pushed by a drop in demand for commercial trucks. As last time in February, most jobs will be trimmed in North Carolina. Six hundred workers planned to be laid off by the beginning of July at the Mount Holly plant which amounts to forty one percent of the total workers. In Gastonia, the numbers of jobs that will be lost are two hundred, about fifteen percent of the total workers.
Daimler eliminated seven hundred jobs at its Mount Holly plant in February, where it builds medium sized trucks.
There are more layoffs in the card with 170 workers in Portland which is close to twenty four percent of its workers. 270 workers will be laid off from the company's Santiago, Mexico plant, about eleven percent of the total workforce.
