Daimler truck layoffs coming in NC, SC, OR

RALEIGH, NC (AP) -

Potentially large layoffs loom at Daimler Trucks factories in North America.

Daimler Trucks North America said Tuesday it was notifying production workers at its manufacturing plants in North Carolina, South Carolina, Oregon and Mexico under a law that requires notice two months ahead of mass layoffs. The company said it would provide details Thursday.

Among those plants is a Freightliner trucks plant in Cleveland, NC. The company said a year ago that it was calling 1,100 workers there back to work because of improving demand in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

In South Carolina, the company has plants in both Gaffney and Fort Mill. It was not immediately clear which of these plants was part of the layoffs.
