Deere Announces Layoffs at Ottumwa Plant

  • Photo
OTTUMWA (AP) - Deere & Co. has announced it will lay off 40 workers at its plant in Ottumwa.

Public Relations Director Ken Golden confirmed the layoffs on Tuesday. The cuts will take effect April 20. The company says production workers with the least experience are in line for the layoffs.

Employees were told of the cuts Tuesday morning.

The announcement comes less than a month after Deere announced it would eliminate 325 positions at its plants in Dubuque and Davenport citing the global economic downturn and reduced demand for construction and forestry equipment.

John Deere Ottumwa Works manufactures hay and forage equipment.
