More layoffs at Navistar

CHICAGO (Sept. 14, 2000) — Navistar International Corp. announced another round of layoffs yesterday, saying it will trim 500 production employees at its plant in Springfield, Ohio, because of declining truck sales.

The maker of trucks, buses, and engines said the layoffs will take effect on Nov. 13 in accordance with plans to reduce output at the plant from 334 per day to 287.

Last month, Navistar said it would cut 1100 salaried and contract workers. Further cuts to production staff were made over the summer.
