200 Cut At Central Pa. Harley-Davidson Plant

YORK, Pa. (AP) – About 200 union production workers at Harley-Davidson plant in central Pennsylvania will be losing their jobs in the latest round of layoffs.

Company spokesman Michael DiMauro said the workers at the Springettsbury Township plant were notified Friday or Monday that this week would be their last.

The plant has been reducing its full-time union work force from about 1,950 employees to between 700 and 800 full-time workers and 200 to 300 employees who would only work as needed.

DiMauro says about 1,300 union production employees will remain after the 200 job cuts. He says the company is “getting closer to the final number.’’
