150 workers will lose their second-shift assembly jobs Dec. 1 at CNH Industrial in Mount Pleasant.
Company officials told employees 10 days ago that the layoffs are considered indefinite, a story in The Journal Times reads.
United Auto Workers Local 180 President Jeff Vassh told the newspaper the layoffs are the result of market factors beyond workers’ control.
“(This has) nothing to do with the quality of the work or the product,” he said.
Under the rules of the contract, the least senior members of the workforce will be the first to go, some of whom are new hires and left jobs to take positions at Case, Vassh stated.
