Columbus, Ind.-based Cummins Inc. continues to take steps to reach a target of cutting up to 1,500 jobs from its global work force by the end of the year.
The company confirmed to Inside INdiana Business that it will lay off at least 150 workers in southern Indiana. Another 126 workers will be transferred to an engine plant in Columbus.
Determinations about further cuts continue.
The layoffs are expected to impact the MidRange and Fuel Systems plants in Columbus or the engine operation in Seymour.
A union official was quoted earlier this week as saying his membership, which includes research, technology and support staff, would not be subject to job cuts.
Cummins responded at that point by saying determinations were still being made.
