More Harley layoffs

Harley-Davidson has confirmed more layoffs – affecting some 200 employees during its third quarter.

Union sources said many of the layoffs will take place at Harley’s assembly plant in York, Pa., but that a handful will occur at the engine plant in Menomonee Falls, where the company employs approximately 1,000 people, and there will be approximately 35 layoffs at the plant in Tomahawk.
Some 117 of the layoffs will occur at the York plant, in Springettsbury Township, Pa., that employs approximately 950 members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers Local 75.
For Harley, spokeswoman Maripat Blankenheim said: “The company continually reacts to industry and market changes to provide the best products and services to our customers. To that end, as we adjust our production plan to align with 2016 guidance, we are making the necessary changes to right-size the company.
“As a result, approximately 200 regular and casual union employees will be impacted across our U.S. plants. The majority of impacts are scheduled for the fourth quarter.”
